The Think Women songwriting contest is for youth ages 16-24 who want to promote social justice and inclusion for women.
Songs will be judged by an all-star panel. Judging criteria will be based on several factors including lyrical content, song structure, and alignment to the campaign. Production quality will not be considered as part of the overall contest. Five winners will be announced in advance of International Women's Day on March 8, 2021.
Winning songs will be released on Spotify, Apple Music, and other major retailers on March 8, 2021 - International Women's Day.
