The Women Win photo and video contest is open for submissions from 15th December 2021 to 25th January 2022. We are hoping to see the lives of girls, women and other marginalised genders through the eyes of women and non-binary photographers. Winners will be announced on February 2022.

We believe there's still a lack of visibility of women, girls and other marginalised genders taking action and full ownership of their lives in the sports and work environment. Our main objective with this initiative is to gather more visual references of empowered girls, women and gender non-conforming people to share with the world and inspire others.

There will be 5 categories per type of submission (photo or video) and each category will have a cash prize for the best three submissions. 
  • We are looking for well lit, beautifully composed shots and clips of girls, women and non-binary folks, within the context of sport, empowerment, work and community
  • We aim to showcase photography and images mostly from global south, grassroots photographers, shot by women and non-binary people in marginalised communities
  • Participants are allowed to submit up to 5 than photographs and videos, but will need to fill in one application per file.
  • We strongly encourage all our implementing partners to submit their best images
  • The contest is open to all organisations and individuals, and not only our partners
  • While participants will retain full copyright to their media, all submitted entries might be showcased in our channels. 
  • Winners from each category will receive a cash prize and their work will be showcased on our channels.

  1. Sport: Girls, women and people of marginalised genders practicing sports
