"I am Intrepid" competition
By Intrepid Travel
Intrepid asked for people to submit their photos, videos and stories to prove why " I am Intrepid". I decided to do a quick video showing the most precious memories from my round the world tour, hopefully inspiring people to go there too, since life is short and the world is big. More info here.
Global Integration was looking for videos with the theme of Global working. Since cultural differences fascinate me and I have been constantly exposed to them, I decided to showcase the myriad of different interpretations that the same gesture, or action could have in different cultures. So now think twice before taking offence when you are abroad! More info here and here.
"Global Working" competition
By Global Integration
This was my first competition and it fitted me perfectly. Visa has asked us to submit videos of us dancing in different places. I have been dancing around the world quite a lot in the previous years (Thanks to the inspiration by Matt Harding) and so this got me started in competitions. The video above is not the original video but my most up to date "Dancing video". Still need to add 15 African countries to the list. The competition's website is down.
"Visa Travel Happy" competition
While working for Google in Ireland, I participated (and won first place) two years in a row in the "Commercial break" competition. This was a "just for fun" internal competition to produce some engaging video about a Google product (real or fictional). My videos won agains the videos of other very creative and talented people in the office. The videos were voted live by a crowd of 3000 people at our annual sales conference. Unfortunately I can only post the winning video for 2011 (The 2012 winner is internal)
