We created the world’s first living petition where signers created a 3D portrait in return for their pledge to the UN’s #NotATarget campaign. The 3D selfie is a more personal and committed action to support the call for governments and non-state armed groups to better protect civilians and humanitarian workers caught in the crossfire of conflicts. Mike Woods led the project and Ray Tintori created a series of films.
