Deadline: January 20, 2020

Students submit your 3-6 minute film on beauty issues that...
  • PROPOSE SOLUTIONS to illuminate changing ideals of beauty for girls globally. Redefine in your own words what "beauty" means to you. What are some of the qualities that make a girl seem beautiful, feel beautiful, or look beautiful? or
  • CREATE awareness about beauty issues that impact self-image for women and girls such as perception of feminine beauty or MISREPRESENTATION of female beauty.
