The paper focuses on the problem of human trafficking highlighted in media. The conceptual analysis of this situation shows the existence of an iconic structure of the cobweb-like shape. This image can be used as the basis of iconic framing technique in the warning and prevention programs aimed at combatting human trafficking, with the target audience embracing the vulnerable social groups. Understanding how this social agenda is “refracted” through the cobweb picture in media texts allows to develop specific techniques of raising public awareness through iconic framing. In particular, the interest lies in correlation of iconic representations and respective verbal elements that reinforce visual effects such as “to be caught in a cobweb of human trafficking”. Based on the approach described herein, a “toolkit” of verbal means activating the cobweb image has been analysed and recommended as an applicable technique for social awareness campaigns against human trafficking.
