University of Cambridge launches #vlogbridge competition to find its best student vlogger

CAMBRIDGE, 05-Oct-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Cambridge is on the hunt for its best student vlogger with £200 of video kit and expert mentoring up for grabs.

Today the University of Cambridge launches #vlogbridge, a competition to find the best 60 second film made by and starring a student, about their first year.

Ibrahim Mohammed, better known as Ibz Mo, one of Cambridge’s leading student YouTubers, is helping to launch the competition.

In a film accompanying the launch, he tells students: “Vlogging has changed my life – in the space of six months I was able to make new friends, network with businesses.

“On a daily basis I get messages from my amazing followers telling me how I’ve inspired them to apply here at Cambridge and that relationship with your followers is the best thing about this journey.”

Ibz will also be one of the judges, along with Master of Selwyn College Roger Mosey and head of the University digital communications team Barney Brown.

The winner will receive £200 worth of video equipment, plus expert mentoring from the University communications team. The best films will also feature on the University’s social media channels.

The competition closes on 5 December 2017 and the winner will be announced at the start of the Lent Term.
