UCalgary International Video Contest

2021 International Video Contest - How do you see Calgary?

You travelled the world.
Now show us what you experienced!

Calling all incoming exchange students! We want to see Calgary through your eyes.

Enter our 2021 Incoming Exchange International Video Contest for a chance to win a prize pack of UCalgary swag.

All videos submitted must align with the 2021 theme of “Calgary through your lens.” Did you have any assumptions or expectations before you came to Calgary? How has your experience changed or altered your perspective? What aspects of life in Calgary and your studies at UCalgary are different from your home university? We want to know how your time here has changed your worldview on things like education, learning, food, lifestyle, music, culture, and see how you’re experiencing our university, our city and our province!

The deadline to submit is November 17, voting will take place November 22 - 26, and the winners will be announced November 30. The top three videos will receive a small prize to remember their time with us on campus, and all entries will be published on our Study Abroad YouTube channel.
