Envisage International Corporation, a leader in the field of international education marketing for students and academic institutions, is pleased to announce the launch of the 2017 Travel Video Contest. Now in its twelfth year, the contest offers current and aspiring international students the opportunity to showcase their creativity and storytelling skills to the world while competing for cash prizes, including 4,000 USD Grand Prize, a 1,000 USD Viewers’ Choice Award, and runner-up prizes. Along with the 4,000 USD cash prize, the Grand Prize winner will also receive their own blog on to document their international journey to the world.

“An international education is an invaluable experience, but finding funds to make it happen, or to be able to travel during that time can be difficult for many international students,” said Bryanna Davis of “Our goal is to allow students from around the world to tell their story while also having the chance to relieve some of the financial burden associated with their international education.”


Entrants must be at least 18 years of age and meet one of the two entry qualifications: International students currently studying outside of their home country must create a video that describes a trip they would like to take. Aspiring international students must describe a proposed study abroad.

The video must be less than four minutes long, be creative, engaging and originally produced for this contest. All potential contestants are encouraged to read additional Contest details can be found here.

Although there are no restrictions on the type of video equipment that can be used to create an entry, the audio and visual quality of the entry will be a factor in determining the winner. Over the past eleven years, there has been a huge variety of entries and winners, and potential entrants can get inspired by watching videos on our previous winner’s page.
