The video must be filmed in English with a maximum duration of 5 minutes. The deadline for submissions is March 31. Complete information is available on the official 2018 Online Competition page.

Selected students will be invited to the two-day 2018 FITE Conference and competition final on June 21-22 in Nusa Dua, Bali. The semifinalists will then participate in a training workshop led by debate and tourism experts from George Washington University. At the end of the competition, three winners will be awarded with a study tour to France.

The IFI has been holding the competition since 2016. Last year, the three winning students were Desy Ekaputri from the Institute of Tourism (STP) Bali, Inasa Ori Sativa from STP Bandung and Pande Putu Wulandari from STP Bali. (wir/kes)
