A team of students from the CEU Universidad San Pablo of Spain was awarded the first prize for their #Rewind campaign, which addressed bullying and hateful comments online. The initiative was aimed at equipping the silent majority of Internet users with simple tools to speak up against hate online.

This campaign's focus was raising awareness about bullying and its consequences. The goal of this campaign was to encourage victims to defend themselves, bystanders to intervene, and the actual perpetrators of bullying to stop - and overall, for everyone to unite in kindness. The campaign encouraged participants to share their experiences and bring more attention to the issue of bullying with a video and hashtag campaign.
