Adolescent girls and young women are victims of virtual violence that manifests itself through numerous cases of cyberthreats, bullying, the use of demeaning phrases and stereotyped and violent images in electronic media such as emails, social networks, blogs, text messages and mobile phones. This violence constitutes a violation of women’s right to live free of violence.
In preparation for the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence, the Inter-American Commission of Women (CIM) invites you to participate in the “Delete virtual violence” contest and develop your own audiovisual or graphic campaign with concrete proposals to eradicate this violence.
The CIM will select 3 proposals that will be posted on CIM’s Website and social media. The deadline for submitting your proposal is February 8th, 2015.
The selection criteria will be:
1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes: presentation of the graphic/audiovisual campaign to the 2015 CIM Assembly of Delegates. Airfare and hotel expenses will be covered by the CIM.
This contest is open to students between the ages of 18 and 25.
You are allowed to use graphic design software, cameras, tape recorders, and cell phones, among other tools.
