Deadline: January 29, 2021.
The Delegation of the European Union to Nigeria and ECOWAS is organising a short video competition on sexual and gender-based violence as a means of eliminating its prevalence in society.
The objective of the competition is to stimulate the awareness of Nigerians on issues of gender-based violence, ensuring that the voices of young people are heard and taken into consideration when shaping and implementing programmes and policies in Nigeria.
- This competition is for videos made by Nigerians (individuals or groups) based on their understanding of SGBV and how to mitigate its prevalence in society.
- Entrants are asked to express what they understand by sexual and gender-based violence and ways to eliminate it in society.
- Unleash your creativity in a three-minute video to illustrate the positive changes you would like to see.
- Express it with moving pictures using a true-life story or fiction.
There will be ten winners for the overall best videos.
1st Prize = Video editing desktop
2nd Prize = Video editing laptop
3rd Prize = DSLR camera
The 7 best runners-up will receive a grant of N500,000 each.
10 best videos will be shown at all gender-based events, with credits to the video owners.
