The Rusty Radiator awards are back.

The awards, that are given out to the fundraising videos having the worst use of sterotypes was conducted by the Norwegian Students' and Academics' International Assistance Fund (SAIH) which nominated four videos for their fundraising stereotypes. 

According to Al Jazeera, SAIH awarded this year’s award to South African aid organization Feed A child for its video. 

The other videos are available at rustyradiator.com

The website says “This kind of portrayal is not only unfair to the persons portrayed in the campaign, but also hinders long-term development and the fight against poverty.”

The advertisement below shows a woman feeding a young child, and compares the average eating habits of kids with dogs.
