- Racist, sexist or any other discriminatory images, symbols or language
- Violent or triggering imagery/symbols including weapons (knives, guns etc), scenes of violence and gory/bloody scenes.
Please note that we also do not accept songs with religious lyrics or affiliations because we are a non-religious nonprofit that has no affiliation to any religion.
In accordance with our work to stop Violence Against Women, we ask that the songs be powerful, positive and uplifting songs for women, girls and survivors of gender-based violence. Lyrical themes that can build on this framework can include:
- Female empowerment
3. Vocals and Lyrics are compulsory
All submitted covers must have vocals. This is because the lyrics of the selected songs are important for spreading the message of empowerment and non-violence.
All songs should be in English or, if bilingual, should have English as one of the languages.
Any instrumentals-only songs will be automatically disqualified.
