Creativity Competition 3rd Prize

Monday 15th May, 2017

As part of Privacy Awareness Week 2017 the Office of the Commissioner for Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) held its inaugural creativity competition. 

CPDP sought entries from members of the public showcasing their interpretation of 'privacy' and what it means to them. We received a range of entries, including poems, artwork, songs, photographs and short stories. 

CPDP awarded prizes for the top three entries, and we are pleased to share these with you. 

3rd prize - Ben Minerds 

Creativity Competition 3rd Place

 Ben had this to say about his entry:

"I have used the symbology of the lock and eye to represent Privacy and Telecommunications respectively, to engage the viewer in considering the compromises we all make between privacy, security and connectivity in a modern society. This work enables people to look at the legislation in a way that is accessible and inclusive, by making wordclouds from the text of the Privacy Act 1988 and the Telecommunications Act 1997, thereby allowing a greater diversity in the voices that are able to engage with and discuss the legislation under consideration."

Congratulations Ben!
