Travel Video Contest

The 2016 Travel Video Contest is now open for entries. Students from around the world once again have the chance to win the $4,000 grand prize, a $1,000 Viewers’ Choice Award, other runner up prizes, and, of course, worldwide fame.

We want the best video you can make, no longer than five minutes long, that tells us about your proposed international studies. If you’re already an international student, the video can tell about any trip you would like to take. Over the years, we have had all kinds of winners - wonderful animations, creative stop motion films, talented performers, beautiful videography, and simply compelling stories. Watch past winning videos, check out who will judge your video, read the rules and regulations, and then submit your entry.

We, at, will choose finalists from all eligible entries received. From the list of finalists, our judges will then choose the final winners. Viewer voting will determine the Viewers' Choice Award winner- this individual will receive the Viewers' Choice award and receive an automatic entry into the final round. Don't miss the deadline, and make sure you read all of the rules, as we cannot accept your video entry if it does not conform to our policies.

Wonder what it takes to win?

Check out our past winners, but make sure you don't recycle their ideas! Originality and creativity will be a big factor in determining who will win the $4,000 grand prize.
