Way back in March of this year, Vancouver Film School announced that they were partnering with YouTube to create a scholarship challenge. YouTubers were given the chance to win one of three full scholarships for whichever VFS programme they wanted to pursue, all they had to do was produce a three minute short film around the subject “What Matters To You”.
The response to the competition was widespread, with hundreds entries coming in from all over the globe. The Vancouver Film School team whittled through the entries, and placed the top ten on the VFS YouTube channel and allowed the public to vote on their favourites.
The top three videos have been announced, and they are:
Jorge R. Canedo Estrada, 17, of Mexico (Digital Design)
Christopher Harrell, 25, of the United States (Digital Design)
Stefan Ramirez Pérez, 19, of Germany (Foundation Visual Art & Design)
You can view the three winning entries right here on VFS’ YouTube channel.
