McMaster University student wins third place in ‘Study in Australia Video Contest’

The Australian Trade Commission has announced that McMaster University student, Joshelin Horn, was third place winner of the 2010 video contest Study in Australia: An unexpected adventure.

Joshelin studied for a semester at the University of Wollongong in the spring of 2010.

For her video submission, Joshelin will receive a flipcamcorder.

Joshelin‟s video, Postcards from Down Under, gives viewers a taste of a study abroad student’s life in Australia through a series of postcards sent to a loved one back home.

The postcards span topics such as Australian culture, wildlife, and natural beauty.

Her film’s special perspective and creative theme are what earned her a top prize. The video contest, organised by Austrade (Washington, DC) challenged participants to think beyond the stereotypes of Australia and document what they found to be different or unexpected.

All winning videos and honourable mentions can be viewed on the Study in Australia website at here

The video contest ran from 6 July to 28 October 2010 and received 56 eligible entries.

The selection committee was made up of Austrade, STA Travel, and Australians in Film.

Qantas and STA Travel sponsored the contest by providing two round trip tickets to Australia. Austrade (Washington) provided one iPad and three flipcamcorders.
