2017 Study Abroad video contest
Get your video cameras, smart phones, or any other picture-taking or recording apparatus ready for the 2017 Concordia International Study Abroad Video Contest! Show the Concordia community what it’s like to study abroad, share your experience with us, and you could win some great prizes!
Concordia students who are on exchange in the Fall and/or Winter of 2016-17 are eligible to participate. We will be accepting entries until August 1, 2017.
The 2017 Study Abroad Video Contest entries will be judged by members of CSEA – the Concordia Student Exchange Association - in conjunction with Concordia International.
To inspire you, here is a list of winning videos from last year’s contest:
1.) Arun for his video "My 6 Months Down Under"
2.) Ana Patricia for her video "Chère Ana..."
3.) Saratou for her video "A glimpse of my year abroad"
All video submissions must include the following information: student’s name, student’s program, name of the host institution, location (city, country) of the host institution.
Videos must contain an image of the host institution, and some details about your experience as an exchange student, and should not be longer than 3 minutes.
Students who submit a video will not need to submit an exchange report to their International Liaison Officer (another great reason to get filming!).
Videos containing nudity, alcohol or drug use, sexual content, obscenities, or any other offensive content will not be accepted.
One submission per student please.
