Why is this competition only open to women?

While we’ve made great progress in the fight for gender equality, there’s still room for improvement. Women entrepreneurs remain significantly underrepresented worldwide. We know this competition won’t solve the problem, but we believe that small acts like this will make a BIG difference in creating a level playing field for all. 

Will UNiDAYS be able to use the content I submit? 

Yes, we’ll have the rights to use the video content submitted as part of this campaign or future related campaigns. But we won’t own any rights to the project, cause, business or idea submitted.

Where can I find the T&Cs? 

You can check out the full terms and conditions here.

Can I apply if I’m not in the UK? 

The competition is only open to UK and US UNiDAYS members.
