Women's NGO WCC (Penang) is calling upon men and boys to do their part to help end gender-based violence. They are inviting male members of the public to create their own short videos on the topic and share it online.

There are great prizes to be won, including a total cash prize of RM3,000, in the online video competition called "It's your turn, Bro!"

"Every day, women and children face different forms of violence in their family and society. Men and boys can help to end this by creating a short video and posting it online," the women's NGO said in a post on social media.

The competition period runs until June 25, 2023 and offers three cash prizes: a first prize of RM1,500, a second prize of RM1,000, and a third prize of RM500. There are also attractive consolation prizes from China House, E & O, Habitat and other sponsors.

All men and boys above 13 years of age residing in Malaysia are eligible to participate, but those below the age of 18 require parental consent. There is no charge for taking part but registration is required.

"What you need to do is to create an online video with a maximum length of 60 seconds on the topic 'Ways men can end gender violence in daily life'. Then, post your video on TikTok, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, and tag @WCCPenang and include the hashtags #MenAgainstViolence and #YourTurnBro. Your video settings need to be public," said WCC.

"Your video can be in any language, but Bahasa Malaysia or English subtitles must be provided for videos in languages other than Bahasa Malaysia and English."

Videos will be judged on creativity, originality, impact and technical execution, and winners will be announced on July 10.
