CID’s first video competition is now over, and the judges have reviewed all the videos. As a reminder, the instructions were to answer the question “What does intercultural dialogue look like?” in 90-120 seconds, on video. Separate posts have appeared over the past weeks describing each of the videos and their makers, but here is a single list with links to all of them.
The winners were:
1st prize: Jinsuk Kim, MA student, Temple University, USA
2nd prize: Class 5B, School of Arts “Aldo Passoni,” Turin, Italy
3rd prize: Sahiti Bonam, BA student, Temple University, USA
In addition, there are three Awards of Excellence:
Victoria Wasner, PHD student, Durham University, UK
Mónica Estrella Oliva,Gabriela Quevedo Rabanal and Renato Morales Camacho, BA students, University of Lima, Peru
Coyote Creative Practicum, BA students, University of South Dakota, USA
My thanks to all the competitors, who took the time to really think about the question of how to show intercultural dialogue visually. Thanks to colleagues around the world, who helped spread the word about the competition. Thanks to the judges of the competition, professionals who made time to review student videos (and special thanks to Mary Schaffer, on the CID Advisory Board, who not only served herself but recruited the other judges, and helped guide me through the logistics.) Thanks to Heather Birks, for initially suggesting the idea, for arranging funding for the award to be provided by the Broadcast Education Association (BEA), for providing server space for the videos, and for JD Boyle, at BEA, to provide technical support. Thanks to Linda J. de Wit, former CID intern, for designing the poster. The competition would have been impossible without all of the work of all these people.
