We are pleased that so many great photos were submitted to raise awareness for this year's International Women's Day. We received some great shots showing off girls' and women's skills, who not only look determined and fearless but also look like they are having so much fun!
This photo contest made it possible for us to reach over 25,000 people and this would not have been possible without the participants' contributions. Due to your photo submission and likes we were able to shine light on girls and women being strong and courageous leaders through sport.
