So…where in the world are YOU going?
Studying abroad in Shanghai or Mumbai, Rio or Reykyavik? Sailing along New Zealand’s golden coasts to conduct maritime studies? Exploring the architecture of ancient Italy? Perhaps your global adventures have taken you no further than the campus dining hall, where a celebration of ethnic cuisine awaits. And if you are an international student studying here in North Carolina, we ARE your destination! Wherever your next international foray takes you – at home or abroad – we want to hear your story. So grab your camera – and your imagination – and participate in the University of North Carolina’s first annual international video competition.
Whether you’re from Amsterdam or Asheville, Nigeria or Newton, studying abroad or visiting from another country – tell us a compelling, creative story about where you’ve been, what you’ve experienced, and how your adventure has impacted you both personally and academically .
Take your pick of these categories:
A Day In The Life (open to all international students):
Impact Abroad (open to current and former Study Abroad participants):
Cultural Connections (open to all students):
First, second and third-place prizes ($500, $250 and $100) will be awarded to winning filmmakers in each category.
