Kit Koh, ECD, BBDO South China:

Bullying is such a major social issue around the Asia, but often gets little attention from the public. This nicely crafted short film featuring Thailand MMA Woman Champion, Rika Ishige, is not just inspiring, it raises the awareness of bullying in the country. I like it because it turns a tissue paper brand into real inspiration for bully victims with this meaningful #gentlenotweak campaign.
