The WOMEX Showcase, Conference and Film programme is created based on an annual call for proposals inviting artists, speakers and filmmakers to apply to take part.

The call for proposals for WOMEX 16 is now closed. A huge thank you to everyone who submitted a proposal!

We have four categories of proposals:


The Showcase and Conference selection is made each year by a new group of seven handpicked jury members – the famous 7 Samurai – the Film programme is curated by our in-house Film team, and the WOMEX 16 DJ Summit will be curated by Guy Morley of No Nation. Every year, WOMEX receives many high quality proposals for a limited number of slots, so the task is tough and the competition is strong.
