Create a campaign for the European Commission

The European Commission is looking to create a video campaign that will support the “Say No! Stop Violence against women” project as part of the DG Justice agenda and in co-operation with edcom.

The aim of the video is to trigger a reaction to say no to violence against women for those who typically do not know how to respond to such behaviour or do not dare to act.  Violence against women is a form of abuse that takes place at all levels of society and in all EU countries. Often, people in the vicinity remain inactive. Targeting these bystanders, the short video should raise awareness of violence against women and encourage people to speak out against it. The production language is English.

Submit a creative idea for a 1-2 minute video campaign in response to a brief by the European Commission. The competition is open to everyone who has a creative way of thinking and wants to make a difference. There is no submission fee and entries can be submitted by teams or individually.


The European Commission will produce the winning entry and grant credit to the winning team or person. The winning entry will be awarded a trip to Brussels (flights and subsistence costs included for up to 4 persons). They will be invited to meet the European Commission team working with gender equality to discuss the project, visit the EU institutions and get a taste of the great cultural scene in the city (details to be confirmed). The prize cannot be exchanged for a financial compensation. The competition is open to EU nationals contestants only.
