TikTok #MicroDocChallenge on #Democracy

By IDA Admin

TikTok #MicroDocChallenge What is Democracy?

What does Democracy mean to you?

Join our TikTok #MicroDocChallenge to express your views on #Democracy. What is a #MicroDoc? We want you to experiment… be free! You can do interviews, use TikTok backgrounds, and archival footage, focus on a specific matter, or keep it artsy, inspired by your favorite documentaries.

We invite TikTok users to make micro docs about what Democracy means to them between February 14 and March 15, 2024.

At the end of the experiment, we will select 20 TikTok videos to receive USD $250 as a cash prize!

Our goals with this experiment are:

  • To encourage an international conversation about Democracy (in all its good and bad elements) during this important 2024 election cycle,
  • To explore and support experiments with documentary form on TikTok,
  • To identify and award powerful work that can open our minds.


  1. Post a TikTok between February 14 and March 15, 2024, to join the challenge.
  2. Make sure your TikTok posts include the hashtags #MicroDocChallenge and #Democracy to be considered.
  3. Tag the handle of IDA @docorg or a partner organization in your caption.
  4. IDA and partners will choose 20 winners, each to receive USD $250 cash prize.
  5. Winners will be announced the last week of March on all partner TikTok accounts.


#MicroDocChallenge is born from a collaboration of IDA, Docs MX in Mexico, Docubox in Kenya, Doc Society in the UK, and In-Docs in Indonesia.
