PCW Launches Film Making Contest for 2014 Women’s Month

College students across the country may now get the chance to showcase their artistry and creativity as the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) launched a film making contest in line with the upcoming Women’s Month Celebration.

The short film-making contest, which runs from January 10 to February 21, aims to raise public awareness on women’s issues, particularly the vital role of women in disaster response, media, peace building, politics and governance, and reproductive health.

Entries must depict current issues and challenges being faced by women in the aforementioned categories and must highlight the rights and roles of women in responding to these issues as provided under the Magna Carta of Women (R.A. 9710).

Interested teams may join in all five categories.

Video entries must be all original and should have not been previously published, recorded or released.
