The Government of the Falkland Islands and the British Embassies in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay invites university students to participate. This regional competition offers winners the chance to visit the Falklands for a week with all the costs covered.
To participate, contestants should send a one minute video answering the question: “Why would I like to meet my neighbors from the Falkland Islands?” in English. The deadline for participants to submit their videos is 11:59 pm on 30 September.
Winners will be staying with a local family, to experience first-hand the life in the Falkland Islands. The ideal winner should be active in social media and willing to share his/her experience about the Falkland Islands through these channels.
The contest is meant to promote the cultural exchange between the Falklands and the region, and to spread the knowledge about the Falkland Island and its people.
