International Women’s Day: Best Practice Competition

Apply HERE

Deadline: April 30, 2018.


Are you running International Women’s Day activity? Could it be an example of ‘best practice’? Might further groups benefit from seeing and understanding your success? Can you provide engaging content and photographs as evidence of your activity and its impact? If so, the International Women’s Day 2018 “Best Practice” Competition could be for you.

Encouraging groups to strive, helps progress the gender agenda and sets a worldwide ​expectation for meaningful action. By shining a spotlight on examples of good practice and celebrating impact, International Women’s Day activity grows bigger and better annually. Sharing the collective information available, builds a hugely valuable pool of expertise, innovation and wisdom. It also inspires further ideas and activity.

Groups and/or their agencies are invited to submit an entry detailing their achievement with real examples of innovation and impact. And “innovation” may or may not not necessarily mean “innovative by world standards”. It may just mean “innovative” for you and your group at this point in time on your journey. Or, it may very well mean “innovative” by comparison – so much so, that it is the newest, biggest or best activity around by far. Either way, the one key aspect to address is what you did, why you did it, and how you believe it made a difference. How did you #PressforProgress?

From around the world, best practice case studies will be featured across a number of important categories to demonstrate how groups championed International Women’s Day and supported the #PressforProgress campaign. The winning case studies will inform and inspire audiences worldwide as the #PressforProgress campaign continues throughout the year.
