Petition Require adverts to state when person's features have been enhanced or distorted

The Government should enact legislation to make it compulsory for any form of advertisement featuring human beings, to declare whether the image has been digitally edited, filtered or altered in order to enhance or distort the features of the person in question.

More details

One in three UK teenagers feel 'ashamed of their body' (Guardian, 2019), causing substantial physical and psychological distress among adolescents, and even in children as young as 12. Therefore, I feel it is imperative, at the very least, that advertisements using any form of distortion or body altering software, must declare these images as 'altered', 'edited', or 'photoshopped' to reduce the unattainable and false perceptions of body image and beauty standards evident in today's society.
