The par: 200.000 trees!
Building a single golf course puts thousands of trees at a stake. However in southern Turkey, they are planning to build several golf courses simultaneously. Take action. Help us stop them.

it looks like a cut-out to me. The axe has a strange glow around it....i think its a bit forced, but then it could be just me. Im having a rough morning! yawn!

Now, this should be outraging me.
Making me do something proactive.
This is just entertaining me.

For saving forests?
No, it isn't!
That's the brief, man.

i like the logic but not the art direction and copy. i'm sure htey can be more egdy. if the photo is much less saturated, and make it double spead to see more of the grass-covered hills. then the idea might come acress more impactfully.

GHOST! GHOST! GHOST! Come oooon! Here is a very fake ad. These are GHOST ads for sure. And these are the proofs. What is the brief? "Let's try to close golf coursers because they're bad for the world?" or "Quit golf and save the world?" or "Hey all these rich guys fucking to the nature so let's disturb them... What about golf courses?" Blah, blah, blah! No, it's not possible. This is ridiculous. And most probably the agency, that Ogilvy Istanbul guys, first got the idea then wrote brief and maybe got the client. Otherwise no client will approve this brief and this creative work with themselves. It has no right point of view, no right message, no call to action... All is wrong. Let's be honest, these are not ads. These are mastrubation of the agency.
