Life After Lockdown Travel Video Contest

September 4th, 2020 by Al C

For 15 years, InternationalStudent.com has been organising a contest for international students to create a video about an aspect of their life and their experiences or hopes of studying abroad.

Life After Lockdown Travel Video Contest

Despite the very different landscape for international student travel we’re experiencing in 2020, InternationalStudent.com is bringing the contest back – and this year it has a special tagline: Life After Lockdown.

The concept is simple – create a video up to 2 minutes long about one or both of the following:

  • How COVID-19 has impacted your international education or cultural exchange experience abroad
  • Your ideal international education or cultural exchange after Covid-19

Do this well enough to impress the judges and you could win the top prize of $4,000.

There are also prizes for the 2nd and 3rd place entries, as well as $1,000 for the Viewers’ Choice Award Winner which is voted on by the InternationalStudent.com community!

The submission deadline is 13 October 2020, so be sure to check out all the rules and details by visiting International Student Travel Video Contest

Good luck!
