Now Open: The Travel Video Contest

September 10th, 2013 by Jonathan Frankel Travel Video Contest
Deadline: October 23 has launched their 8th Annual Travel Video Contest! Like in past years- the contest is open to students who would like to study outside their home country, as well as to students who are already studying abroad and would like to take a trip.

Eligible individuals can enter their short video into the contest from September 3rd through October 23rd. The finalists will be announced the week of October 28th and the winners will be announced the last day of International Education Week: November 15th.

One grand prize winner will receive $4,000 toward their travels abroad along with their very own blog to document the trip on! Keep in mind that judges want to hear about more than where you want to go and why you need the financial help to get there. To be the 8th Travel Video Contest winner you will need to tell your story in such a creative and original way that it’ll make the judges want to watch your video on repeat! Just keep in mind that your video must be less than 5 minutes and you must be over the age of 18.

To get a better idea as to what the contest is all about, check out the previous winners of the Travel Video Contest! Just keep in mind that the judges don’t pick the same type of video to win each year, so instead of trying to re-create a past winning video, be original.

Learn more about the Travel Video Contest rules and how to enter then get your video started!
