The Why Foundation is producing their third public media campaign “WHY WOMEN?” aiming to bring awareness of the challenges faced by women and girls globally.

The 10 Why Women? short films will be screened, among many other places, at the World’s leading women’s conference, Women Deliver, to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, in May 2016.

The idea is to produce high-quality short films about these very important issues regarding girls’ and women’s conditions worldwide. What is special about this competition is that there is only one winner per film category. The prize is 6700 euros, and you have the chance to put women’s conditions on the international agenda.

Create a 2.30 minutes art film based on one of the 5 scripts provided in the brief. You have to create a video- animation or live footage that will interpret, illustrate and elaborate one of the 5 voice-overs, which cover one of the 5 topics. Please do not create your own script or make any changes to the scripts provided. Pick one that inspires you: Maternal and Newborn Health, Family Planning, Health Services, Early, Forced Marriage, Education.

Prizes are subject to the Why Foundation’s decision to select winners. See Rules for details.
