If you are aged 16-18, we would like to hear your ideas on this important topic. Successful finalists will get to spend the day (24 April) with an Ambassador, seeing what a typical day as a diplomat looks like and take part in a Roundtable Debate on Gender Equality.

This competition is being organized under the patronage of Her Excellency Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, President of the Republic of Croatia, the British Embassy, the Norwegian Embassy and other participating Embassies.

To enter the competition you will need to make a video (maximum one minute in length) explaining in English what you would do if you were Ambassador for a day to #pressforprogress on gender equality.  Maximum one video entry per individual.

When you’ve made your video (only good quality videos will be considered), please fill out this application form here and send to: gender.equality@britishembassy.hr so we can hear what you have to say.

Deadline for submission is 8 April 2018.
