International video contest
The university network annually recognises, through the international video contest of the Compostela Group of Universities (CGU), the talent and audiovisual creativity of the students of the member universities. CGU’s international video contest emerged as an initiative to encourage them to use new technologies and to develop their skills for the creation of audiovisual content.
Each year the Compostela Group of Universities awards two prizes. The first prize is €1,000 gross amount and the second €400 gross amount. In addition, the award-winning students receive a diploma of recognition and their videos are disseminated on the main communication platforms of the CGU.
Below you will find information on the latest edition of this permanent activity, IX International video contest of the Compostela Group of Universities.
