2013 Grand winnerThis year’s Travel Video Contest started with more than 100 video entries. As difficult as it was, that number was cut down to the top 15 finalists. We were able to see inside the lives of international students around the world and why they are determined to explore all corners of the globe.

After weeks of watching numerous videos and taking each of them into careful consideration, our judges were able to name the top three winners…and here they are:

Through a project he calls “POSTCARD” he will make this happen.
