Are you an African woman writer, photographer, creator, artist or with an interest to raise your voice? Nala Feminist Collective wants to hear from you about which of the 10 Demands speaks to you. Apply for the Nala Feminist Collective “This is my Demand” Contest 2021.

This creative contest invites African women to reflect on the Demands of the Africa Young Women Beijing+25 Manifesto by submitting a photo, a drawing, or a short video accompanied with a maximum of 500 words describing or narrating your story or the reality in your community after choosing one of the 10 Manifesto Demands in response to the following prompts: “How does the Demand you’ve chosen speak to you, or your community?” They would like to hear about your experiences, your realities, and why the demands matter to you and why it should matter for decision-makers to act on them. Be creative. They want to hear your voice, and see through your lens. Be authentic and don’t be afraid to express yourself.
