Photo competition for the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

13 11 2013

The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women will be commemorated on 25 November. In conjunction with this, the Singapore Committee for UN Women is holding a photo competition entitled Sheroes through the month of November with the aim of celebrating the inherent strength and power of every woman – everyday, rather than focus  on women only as victims of violence.

The competition is open to residents of Singapore over 13 years of age and all photo submissions should be original content that highlights a woman or girl in your life that inspires you, with a short description of why the woman/girl featured inspires you and why you believe she is a Shero, inlcuded. Photos can be submitted until 25 November via the Singapore Committee for UN Women’s Facebook page

The selection of finalists will be made on 25 November on the basis of online voting (which commences on 18 November). The top 10 photographs will be exhibited at the Indigo Blue Art Gallery on 29 November on which day the winning photograph will be announced with the winner picking up a surprise prize. For more information, do visit the Singapore Committee for UN Women’s Facebook page and the Singapore Committee for UN Women website.
