Media Matters for Women applied for and was selected for the second round of competition of the TED Audacious Prize 2019! This is a relatively new global initiative for launching big, audacious ideas like ours.
Our first submission was a superb team effort, including a video created by our team in Sierra Leone. We were one of 1,500 submissions. We were thrilled to be asked to make a second-round application.
Although we were not selected for the prize this year, it strengthened our teamwork and resolve to move our projects forward. We will certainly try again in 2020!
