About INTA

Unreal Campaign

The Unreal Campaign educates young consumers to help them make smart purchasing decisions today and in the future.

As young consumers make their footprint in commerce, especially e-commerce, we want them to know what’s behind what they buy.

The Unreal Campaign is our consumer awareness initiative to educate those aged 14 to 23 about the importance of trademarks and brands and the dangers of purchasing counterfeit products. We reach them through illustrative, relatable presentations, largely at schools, youth-oriented events, or virtual platforms, and through social media engagement.

In working to curb the proliferation of counterfeit products worldwide, we emphasize that brand owners seek to protect trademark rights and their consumers—pointing to the links between fake goods and health and safety risks, organized crime, job losses, and damage to local communities and their economies.

We’re making an impact worldwide. With the support of the Unreal Campaign Committee and other volunteers, we’ve directly reached more than 55,000 students in 40 jurisdictions since we unveiled the Campaign in 2012.

As we encourage young consumers to say “no” to what’s unreal, we ask you to say “yes” to participating in the Campaign.

Unreal Campaign sponsors bolster our efforts to spread the word about the value of trademarks and the dangers of counterfeit products, while bettering society. Thanks to our sponsors’ generosity, we’re able to amplify our social media efforts, showcase genuine and fake products at youth conferences to drive home messaging, and introduce other initiatives to engage young consumers. When you give us more visibility, we’re pleased to be able to give you visibility, too—as a sponsor of the Campaign.
