CID’s second video competition is now over, and the judges have reviewed all the videos. As a reminder, the instructions were to answer the question How do social media influence intercultural dialogue? in 90-120 seconds, on video.
1st prize goes to Juanma Marín Cubero (in Advertising and Public Relations) & Rafa Muñoz Hernandez (in Audiovisual Communication), both undergraduates at the University of Murcia, in Spain.
Title: Break the Borders
Description: “Our inspiration came directly from the question: How do social media influence intercultural dialogue? The answer that came to us was that they bring people together regardless of where
they are. Social media facilitate dialogue, so we wanted to capture how people from different countries could communicate and in some way break geographic boundaries, since social media have made this possible. We also wanted to transmit the values that intercultural dialogue has, which are respect, union, empathy, freedom, etc. We had a great challenge when it came to translating our ideas onto video. But with imagination and effort we got the result we wanted. For its creation we have used everything from flour, to the Adobe Premiere editing program. In summary, it has been hard work as well as satisfactory for us, and we hope that we have managed to appropriately convey our idea.”
There were first, second and third place winners. Each of these is being highlighted in a separate post, as they warrant our attention. My thanks to the judges of the competition, professionals who made time to review student videos. Thanks also to all the competitors, who took the time to really think about the question of how social media influence intercultural dialogue.
