Submit a Proposal

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 17 will open in January. To be informed of when we will begin accepting submissions, subscribe to our newsletter

We have four categories of proposals:

  • Showcases
  • DJ-cases
  • Films
  • Conferences

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 DJ Summit is be curated a specialised DJ jury member. Every year, WOMEX receives many high quality proposals for a limited number of slots, so the task is tough and the competition is strong.
