Video Competition

Volunteer Overseas in Kenya with IVHQ

International Volunteer HQ hosts a monthly video competition for all past and current volunteers to share a moment from their volunteer trip abroad!

Upload your video to YouTube and click 'Enter Now' on the right of this page to submit the link to your video. Then ask your friends and family to vote and you’ll be on your way to winning a complimentary Registration Fee for your next IVHQ program (valued at US$279)! Please ensure you only use media for which you have copyright permission and do not use any copyrighted music or video.

There is no limit on the number of videos you can enter in the competition, however if you pick just one, you can increase your chances of collecting the most votes.

Once your video has been approved by IVHQ, encourage your friends and family to vote by sharing your video via Facebook, Twitter or email.

Each month, the volunteer whose video collects the most votes wins a complimentary Registration Fee for any IVHQ program!

Please note, all competition entries must follow the IVHQ Child Protection Policy. This means children and vulnerable adults should not be in a video alone or portrayed in a belittling or degrading manner.
