Cultural/Context information for the jury

14 European countries allow gay marriage. Not included: Switzerland. In its 25th year Switzerland’s largest gay association PINK CROSS finds itself in charge to change this anachronism. But: as a non-profit-organisation it is depending on donations. Time for a fundraising campaign that raises awareness and the required monetary resources to achieve a political goal like this: „The Kissing Bills“. A provocative series of press ads with a compelling media concept: 16 bills got folded and photographed in a way that its portraits got paired into 8 kissing same-sex couples. Showing faces that meet where facing pages meet - art direction just by looking closely. Proving that money will bring together what chooses to stay together - regardless of race, culture and above all: sexual orientation.
