Back in March, Vancouver Film School and YouTube announced a first-of-its-kind competition. The challenge was to make a three-minute video about the theme, "What matters most to me." The prize: three full-tuition scholarships to one of VFS's world-class programs. After months of submissions and many fantastic entries, our judges whittled the competition down to ten worthy finalists. Now, after a week of voting by the YouTube community, we are pleased to announce the winners of the VFS/YT Scholarship Competition.

From Mexico in the program of Digital Design, Jorge Rolando Caneda Estrada:

From Germany in the program of Foundation Visual and Art Design, Stefan Ramirez Perez:

And from the United States in the program of Digital Design: Christopher Harrell:

Congratulations -- we know the YouTube community will be waiting with baited breath to see what you all do next!

Finally, to everyone who submitted videos to the competition and to those of you who voted for your favorite video, thank you from everyone here at the YouTube Team for making this great competition possible.

Happy Filmmaking,

Sara P.
