The Cyprus Papers

The Cyprus Papers is a leak of 2,500 named applications for EU citizenship issued by the Cyprus government over the period of 2 years. As part of the investigation we produced a 13 minute animated explainer, news graphics packages, social media sequences, studio backdrops, interactive designs and animations and all in both English and Arabic. Everything was rolled out on the Al Jazeera Network over a week in August 2020.
