PRIZES

ISV will be selecting 3 winners from the pool of competition entries. The 3 winning entries will each earn a $1,000 scholarship towards the ISV Program of their choice, and their videos will be showcased on the ISV website as well as promoted through ISV’s media and industry channels.

WHAT SHOULD BE IN MY FOOTAGE?

While on your trip take video footage of as much as you can, during both volunteering and adventure activities. When it comes to editing, remember that 5 minutes is not a long time so be sure to convey a central theme to make your experience stand out.

You may show both volunteer and adventure components, or focus on a particular experience. Get creative! Standard testimony videos are also acceptable, as we love to hear people speak about their ISV Program.

CAN I USE MUSIC IN THE BACKGROUND?

Yes, you can. You can choose to have music or no music in your clip.
