Applications will be considered on their relevance to the theme ‘Making ALL Women’s Voices Heard’ and decided on by the organising group. The core focus for events is 2nd-10th March but we will also consider relevant events either side of those dates. We aim to let you know if your submission has been successful as soon as possible after the deadline of 13th January. Please note that we cannot accept late entries. If you are submitting a skeleton outline for your event please make this clear; you will be able to add further details later on the Facebook page.
Please provide as much detail as possible in your application, paying particular attention to the following Guidelines:
Guidelines for Entries
Please complete all sections of the form, including start and end times, postal address for venue including postcode, accessibility details, details of any beneficiaries for monies raised, and contact details for the organiser/s as you want them to appear in the programme.
Submissions are welcomed for a range of women’s events but please include why your event will contribute to ‘raising all women’s voices’ and reflect this in the Description of the Event that will appear in the programme. We are especially keen that you consider how to attract marginalised women who might not otherwise attend. The description is limited to an absolute maximum of 450 characters (about 70 words), including spaces, in order to fit the brochure template; we reserve the right to reduce entries where necessary but will check final wording with you prior to printing.
If you are raising money for a charity please make sure you include key details of the charity/women’s organisation, its full name and website.
If your event is ‘women only’ please make this clear; for YIWW events, ‘women only’ means being open to all women who self identify as women.
Events must be ‘not-for-profit’. Many events in 2018 were free to participants. Events for which there is a charge, including events run by businesses, can be accepted if they donate the event’s profits to a women’s organisation/charity and the beneficiary is stated clearly in the entry. Profits for this purpose are defined as anything left over from the costs of room hire, refreshments and so on. YIWW 2019 is put together by volunteers and while we fully support women running their own businesses, the events put on as part of YIWW 2019 should be non profit making. If you’re unsure whether what you are planning is eligible, feel free to contact us to discuss.
We do not accept entries for events that include asking participants to ‘sign up’ to any ongoing financial commitment.
