The competition is one of the activities within this year's World Intellectual Property Day, the central theme of which will be female creators, inventors and entrepreneurs.
World Intellectual Property Day is celebrated every year on April 26 by the member states of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), among which our partners are also included. The goal of World Intellectual Property Day is to raise awareness of the importance of protecting intellectual property rights and to honor the contribution of inventors and artists to the development of society.

As part of the theme of this year's campaign, the extraordinary successes and breakthroughs of women inventors, creators and entrepreneurs will be highlighted. The focus will be on the challenges of girls and women from all over the world who are shaping the world with their imagination, ingenuity and hard work, but often face difficulties in accessing the knowledge, skills, resources and support they need to succeed.
