European Union And ECOWAS Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) Short Video Competition

Deadline: January 29, 2021.

The Delegation of the European Union to Nigeria and ECOWAS is organising a short video competition on sexual and gender-based violence as a means of eliminating its prevalence in society.

The objective of the competition is to stimulate the awareness of Nigerians on issues of gender-based violence, ensuring that the voices of young people are heard and taken into consideration when shaping and implementing programmes and policies in Nigeria.


  • This competition is for videos made by Nigerians (individuals or groups) based on their understanding of SGBV and how to mitigate its prevalence in society.
  • Entrants are asked to express what they understand by sexual and gender-based violence and ways to eliminate it in society.
  • Unleash your creativity in a three-minute video to illustrate the positive changes you would like to see.
  • Express it with moving pictures using a true-life story or fiction.
