We hope you are all enjoying this wonderful holiday season! We're here to officially announce our Powerful Women video contest!
What we're asking is for you (whether you do it by yourself or in a get together with a group of friends!) to create a video under five minutes that addresses any one of the prompts below.
- Is feminism still needed today? Is it only needed for underdeveloped countries or is it still needed in developed countries?
- How are you affected by gender inequality? (ie; through media, government, workforce…etc)
- How do you define feminism? Why do you think feminism has such a negative connotation today?
The submitted videos will be voted on through a public poll and the top two will receive a prize, with the first prize being a photo-shoot with the lovely and talented, CYW Photography (you can see some of her work here) So, it's highly suggested that once you make your video, you post it on all forms of social media so that people will watch and go vote!
So why should you participate in this?
First prize: Are you in need of a new profile picture or have you always wanted a professional photoshoot? Well this is your moment! Look and feel amazing with this prize! Our first prize is a mini photoshoot with the owner of CYW Photography. You get a 1-1.5 hour photoshoot with her with 2 outfit changes! You also get a complimentary 8x10 gift print! The prize is valued at $325 and if you want to learn more about CYW Photography, you can read more about her here. This is a perfect opportunity to feel like a star in a professional photoshoot, or a perfect gift to someone you love!
There is no age requirement for submissions, and when you are ready to submit, go ahead and post your video to youtube and then email us the link at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is January 31, and the poll closes about a month later, on February 28th.
So just a recap, here are the criteria for your video:
- Anywhere between 1-5 minutes
- Answers one of the prompts
- Has the link to our website in the video's description
- Includes the words "Powerful Women" somewhere in the video (this can be at the end as a reference to the contest)
Don't worry about having a super fancy video, we just want to hear your opinion and that can be done without it looking professionally edited. You could get together with a group of friends and creatively answer the prompt or just sit down in front of your camera and talk. Whether you answer the prompt with with statistics or drawings, it's as easy or hard and creative or simple as you make it, so just have fun with the prompt and share your voice!
We're extremely excited to see what creative and interesting videos you come up with, happy filming!
Alexis & Shanzay
This could be you!
