The competition is held to witness the power of women designers in Nepal. As you can see the number of women designers in Nepal is quite a few. However, we believe that there are a number of talented women who can design and create art. Their talent hasn’t been witnessed because they haven’t given a chance yet. So we promote and support all the women to step up, believe in themselves, and showcase their talent.

About the Theme
Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world
The competition is based on the UN women theme for International women’s day 2021: Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world.
The majority of the countries successfully stemmed the tide of the COVID-19 pandemic with the impacts that were headed by women. Women leaders and women’s organizations have demonstrated their skills, knowledge, and networks to effectively lead in COVID-19 response and recovery efforts. Today there is more acceptance than ever before that women bring different experiences, perspectives, and skills to the table, and make irreplaceable contributions to decisions, policies, and laws that work better for all.
Based on this, the designs submitted should clearly portray the tremendous efforts shown by women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Women’s full and effective participation and decision-making in public life, as well as the elimination of violence, for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls should be highlighted in the design.
