2021 Travel Video Contest

Our annual Travel Video Contest is back for its 16th year and we’re thrilled to announce that this year’s theme is community. Having a community to turn to for unconditional support is essential for international students and exchange participants. In a creative, engaging video, this year we want to hear all about how your community has impacted or influenced you. For example, your family or your community at home, your new community during your international education, an online community or any group that you consider your community of people. We are looking for creativity, video quality, uniqueness and personality in your video. Be sure to carefully review how to enter the contest and its rules and regulations and submit a contest entry form by the deadline to enter!
