WSI video competition 2020 awards announced January 11,2021   |  Source: WSI

WSI, the International Organisation for Women in the Seafood Industry, has announced its awards for the year 2020 for films that describe the struggles, discriminations and opportunities that women face in the seafood industry around the world.

Marie Christine Monfort, WSI Executive director, says: “The strong stories from all over the world are all very singular and universal at the same time. They describe struggles, discriminations and opportunities that women face in the seafood industry. In all cases the films say that women play a paramount role along the seafood supply chain. Without them, seafood would never reach the consumers and it is time for the industry to pay attention.”

For the fourth consecutive year, WSI has discovered and awarded prizes to extraordinary stories from Indonesia, the United Kingdom, Japan, Tanzania and India.

Among the 23 films in competition from 15 countries, the international jury had the sensitive mission of determining the Official Awards. This year, WSI opened a “Life under Covid” film category as the COVID virus has severely hit seafood workers, especially women.

The international jury, which included highly recognised professionals, has awarded prizes to the following films:

First prize: Move Forward
