UK Embassy opens video essay contest for students to visit Malvinas Islands

Applicants from Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay must submit a one-minute video in English answering the question: “Why would I like to meet my neighbours from the Falkland (Malvinas) Islands?”

The United Kingdom's Embassies in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay have joined forces to organise a video essay contest that will send students who speak English from the four countries to the Malvinas Islands.

The winners of the competition will spend a week on the Islands, learning about the disputed territory's culture, history and people. 

The application – open to students pursuing bachelor's degrees in any of the four nations – requires students to film a one-minute video in English answering the question: "“Why would I like to meet my neighbours from the Falkland (Malvinas) Islands?”

Applications will be accepted through 11.59 pm on September 30. 

Those selected for the trip will stay with a family on the island's to "experience first-hand the life in the Falkland Islands," according to a UK government website. 

The ideal winner should be active in social media and willing to share his/her experience about the Falkland Islands through these channels," the website states. 

The competition also encourages students who are particularly savvy with social media to apply. 

The week-long trip will be fully financed by the government of Islands.
