The British Embassy in Cairo is seeking candidates to take part in a film competition that exhibits "authentic voices of women living through political, social and economic transition in Egypt." 

"In partnership with Misr International Films (MIF), the British Embassy and the British Council are issuing a call for proposals from interested applicants," organisers state in a press release

Theming the competition 'Women in the New Egypt,' the  organisers are looking for work that will focus on the lives of women living in post-revolution Egypt.

Candidates will be evaluated based on a submitted vision statement.

The best 10 will be chosen to participate in mentoring and skills training sessions led by MIF. Five finalists will have their films screened during the upcoming Panorama of the European Film at the British Council in October 2013.

The deadline for submitting proposals is 23 May 2013.
