The Government of the Falkland Islands and the British Embassy in Uruguay invite university students to participate.

The Falkland Islands

This competition offers winners the chance to visit the Falklands for a week, all costs covered. 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 20 to concursofalkland@gmail.com.

Winners will be selected by members of the British Embassy in Uruguay. They 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 Uruguay, 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.
