CID Video Competition: What does Intercultural Dialogue Look Like?

CID has organized its first ever video competition, open to students enrolled in any college or university during the 2017-2018 academic year.

To enter, participants must submit a video no longer than 2 minutes that highlights the importance of intercultural dialogue, responding to the question: “What does intercultural dialogue look like?”

Entries will be accepted April 15-May 31, 2018.

One winner will receive a $200 prize. The top 20 entries will be posted to the CID YouTube channel, and be highlighted on the CID website, along with posts describing the creators and highlighting each of their videos, throughout the rest of 2018.

Submissions will be evaluated based on originality, clarity, cultural message, effective use of technology, and overall impact. Feel free to work independently or in groups. Get creative, show off your skills and, most importantly, have fun!

Video Competition FAQ

Competition Rules

  1. All entries should highlight the importance of intercultural dialogue, presenting your understanding of the concept, or describing a specific instance when you observed intercultural dialogue in practice. Think about how best to turn the abstract concept of intercultural dialogue into a concrete image.
  2. The closing line of each video must include these exact words: “Intercultural dialogue looks like…”
  3. Entries must be no less than 30 seconds, and no more than 2 minutes in length, including the closing line.
  4. The competition is open to all part-time or full time undergraduate or graduate students (post-graduates for those outside the USA) currently enrolled at any university or college or community/ technical college, anywhere in the world.
  5. Entries may be created by one individual, or by a group. Given the topic, incorporating more than one viewpoint may be particularly appropriate.
  6. In addition to a video, each entry should be accompanied by brief information form about the creator(s). This will be used as a resource in sharing information about winning creators on the CID website at the end of the competition.
  7. By submitting your entry, you are attesting that you have the necessary authorization to use the images, audio, text, music, and any other content contained in your video. Please do not enter if you are in violation of, or uncertain of your rights to, any copyrights, patents, trademarks, video, music or other intellectual property. Consult your faculty advisor if you have any questions or doubts about the content of your entry. Applicants will be held fully liable under the law for any copyright or other intellectual property violations.
  8. Submissions found incomprehensible, inappropriate, or in violation of intellectual property rights for any reason in the sole judgment of CID will not be accepted into the competition.
  9. The 2018 entry window runs from April 15 – May 31, 2018. CID is not responsible for any entry that is misdirected, corrupted, or not received by such date.
