International Day of the Girl Video Project

Are you #preparedtochangetheworld?

Submit your video responses to be part of our International Day of the Girl (IDG) Project!

We know that girls are #preparedtochangetheworld, and that providing support and opportunity for girls to build skills and resilience is critical for developing girls to lead.

This International Day of the Girl, we want to bring as many girl voices together to show the world why and how girls are awesome, how girls are already changing and will keep changing the world,  and how we can support and empower girls to lead change in our communities.

This special Project is powered by Girl Guides Victoria. You do not have to be a Girl Guide to add your voice to the project – all voices of all ages are invited take part!

The project is part of a global theme #preparedtochangetheworld developed by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) for International Day of the Girl 2023. WAGGGS are using International Day of the Girl celebrations to help girls develop the resilience needed to face the pressures and challenges of growing up in a changing world. With resilience, we can develop the confidence to be brave, to innovate, and can truly feel prepared to lead change in our communities.

Video length:
Keep your videos short, sharp and simple – 20 seconds to a maximum of 1.5 minutesFilming tips:

  • Make sure you film in horizontal (landscape) mode.
  • Film in a quiet, well lit place – if you can hear background noise, so can we
  • Check how your video sounds – if you can’t hear yourself, then we won’t be able to hear you
  • Keep your camera steady – get a friend or parent to help film, and/or use a tripod
  • Try and avoid using the zoom function on your smart phone, it can interfere with video quality

Keep it simple:
Please don’t edit your video, add watermarks or branding or do anything fancy – the simpler, the better.

Clothing, logos and brands 
We care about what you have to say, not what you wear! That said, we do ask that you wear plain clothes without other brands or logos on them, or you can choose to wear your Girl Guide uniform if you are a current member.

Will all videos be included?
Unfortunately, we won’t be able to include every video that is submitted in the final project, but we will do our best to include as many different voices as possible!
