The TAK Foundation is hosting a video competition as part of the “Musique est une femme” project co-financed by the Creative Europe Programme, Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland and Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Latvia.
Although women have been writing music for centuries, their work has garnered less consideration and they have not had the same professional opportunities as their male peers. Now women composers are becoming part of the history of music and feature regularly in concert programs.
“Musique est une femme” asks participants to create digital content, such as a short video or meme, that responds to the heritage of women composers and/or the stereotypes around the composing capabilities of women. The form and content is up to you.
The following prizes will be awarded:
- Public prize 650 € (the winner will be selected in the online voting)
- First prize 550 €
- Second prize 450 €
- Third prize 350 €
The deadline for submissions is 5 April 2020. On 9 April, the videos and memes will be uploaded onto a portal for online voting. People will have until 8 May 2020 to vote for their favorite.
