For the second year running, FIG has launched a regional competition to visit the Falklands. Along with the British Embassies in Uruguay, Brazil and Chile the Government of the Falkland Islands has invited university students to participate in this regional competition to win the chance to visit the Falklands for a week, all expenses paid.
To participate, contestants should send a one minute video answering the question: “Why would I like to meet my neighbours from the Falkland Islands?” in English before October 2 to firstname.lastname@example.org
Winners (one per country) will be selected by members of the British Embassies in Uruguay, Brazil and Chile. The three of them will travel together and will be staying with a local family, to experience firsthand the life in the Falkland Islands.
The contest is meant to promote the cultural exchange between the Falklands and the mentioned countries, and to spread the knowledge about the Falkland Island and its people. The ideal winner should be active in social media and willing to share his/her experience about the Falkland Islands through these channels.
