For higher visibility - Women in Seafood video competition

The International Association for Women in the Seafood Industry (WSI), with the support of AFD French Development Agency and Matis Icelandic R&D company launches a « women in seafood » video contest. This competition will reward the best video to highlight the contribution of women in the seafood industry. Winners will be announced in September 2018

One in two seafood workers globally is a woman. They are essential contributors to the industry but remain often ignored thus invisible. And if you are not seen you do not exist. In compliance with its objective to raise awareness on the contribution of women in the seafood industry and to promote young female professionals, the International Association for Women in the Seafood Industry (WSI) launches the second edition of the “women in seafood” video competition, with the support of MATIS and the French Development Agency (AFD).

Individuals, women and men, collectives and institutions, schools are invited to send short videos (less than 4 mins) which describe the life of woman in any segment of the seafood industry (fishing, seafood farming, processing, trading, managing and all related activities, including teaching/ training).

Two categories are open: <25 years old/>25 years old women. The two winners will receive a 1,000 euros prize.

The contest closes on August the 31st. The winners will be announced in late September 2018. Videos need to be sent to wsi-video@matis.is and contact@wsi-asso.org.
