Fan of Female Condoms? Enter International Film Contest
By Rachel Walden — December 21, 2012
If you’re a filmmaker with an interest in spreading the word about female condoms, check out this contest from PATH, a global health organization:
Why does the world need female condoms? How can female condoms enhance your life? Submit a short film (1:00–5:00 minutes) that tells a story about what Female Condoms Are to you and your community. The deadline to enter is March 1, 2013.
First prize receives $5,000. Winning entries will also be screened at the 2013 Women Deliver conference. Full details and rules are on the contest website.
It’s refreshing to know that female condoms are still being discussed as they were not very popular when they came out. It would be interesting to see what the filmmakers come up with. Please visit Venus Blogs as we also promote issues that are of interest to women: http://venusblogs.com/category/sex/
Thank you for posting this. Like Tameka above commented, I am eager to see what the final submissions will be like. The way I see it, female condoms are yet another way to empower our young women of today in their reproductive choices. Why rely on our male counterparts to be the responsible parties, when as I’m sure many of us know, men tend to think with the wrong head in a moment of passion. At the women’s health clinic I attend, female condoms are offered, and though some may think that they are a thing of the past and not modern, they do the job and should be considered by any responsible woman.
