Analysis of the NSPCC poster campaign against child abuse.

Extracts from this document...


Media Coursework Muhammad Syed The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) is a charity that is campaigning and working in child protection. One of their achievements was the Full Stop Campaign which began in 1999 which was a way to involve everyone in the community to end cruelty to children. They had created a pioneering online counselling service, which had helped more than 1,000 kids to speak out about the abuse they had suffered. The NSPCC had helped more than 750,000 children and families through their local services. Another achievement of theirs was that they had increased the amount of public support from adults in 2009 that had an increase of 65% from 1999 when the Full Stop Campaign started. ...read more.

Another main technique being used in the poster is by showing a mask of the girl and how it has a fixed smile on it to show people that she is happy.

This satisfies the people in a way because they now know that there is someone who can help them and they will not be judged by what they are going through. It is NSPCC's way of telling children that talking is the first step in overcoming your problems, and ultimately solving them.
