Transparency International is launching a global contest to unmask the corrupt and bring the world’s attention to the cases where corruption is greatest and has the worst effect on individuals and societies:

Corruption on a grand scale occurs regularly in today’s world. From multi-national corporations like Petrobras and overreaching global organisations such as FIFA, to secretive politicians like Tunisia’s Ben Ali and others, the grand corrupt abuse power, enrich themselves, and immensely harm individuals and societies. They often go unpunished.

Help Transparency International denounce grand corruption. Nominate and discuss the most corrupt in your world; all nominations sent through the website are encrypted and secure. They are fully anonymous.

In December the public will vote on the most corrupt. In February of next year the focus of this campaign will turn to the most powerful ways to sanction them. Together we can act against corruption.
