Women and girls: inspire others and win boxing gear in video competition

May 19, 2021 | by Matt Halfpenny


Women and girls who box for England Boxing clubs are being invited to produce an inspirational Instagram video – which could win boxing gear worth 1,000 euros (approx £860).

The competition – being run by EUBC Passion for Boxing and the Women’s Commissions of the various European nations and supported by Green Hill Sports – wants to celebrate recent female achievement in the sport and drive more interest in it.

Called Green Light For Women’s Boxing, the campaign is searching for personal stories of female boxers in a dynamic format and meaningful context.

Competition organisers are looking for entries to display how they embrace and promote boxing values in any creative form or shape, whether in training or competition, amidst daily routine or during a day off.

It can be uplifting and fun, or serious and thought-provoking. As a personal story, it’s up to the teller how they want to deliver it.

The four key values to convey are: excellence, respect, teamwork, and inclusiveness.

Closing date for entries: 31st May.

Winners announced:  1st June.

Challenge Platform: Instagram.

Video clip format: Instagram video, 30 – 60 seconds long, with pre-made graphical elements (including Green Hill logo). At the start of your video, please insert this frame and end the video with a frame of one of the values. Use copyright-free music, if necessary.
