Notes for Judging: Background:

Although Down syndrome is an irreversible genetic disorder, in Argentina people with this condition are obliged to renew their disability certificate ONCE A YEAR. An old law, absurd and intentionally ignored by politicians.

In 2023, there were presidential elections in Argentina. And although more than 27 politicians ran as candidates, none of them included disability among their campaign proposals. On the contrary, they chose proposals that were demagogic, complicated and above all impossible to fulfill.

We needed to find a way to make people with Down syndrome part of the political agenda. And the time to do it was the presidential debate.

Creative idea:

For the first time, we set out to analyze the candidates' proposals live and demonstrate how difficult they were to implement.

To do so, we developed an indicator capable of measuring in real time the difficulty of implementing them. And during the first electoral debate, and in front of millions of people, we tested it.

This way, we compared the complexity of what the politicians were promising with our simple demand: a new disability law.
