Round the World Competition 2007

In August 2008, to celebrate the launch of our first city guide video, we ran a competition offering you, our customers, the chance to win a 'Round-the-World' trip worth US$3,000. Over the following four months we received good videos, bad videos, and downright odd videos.

Judged by Hostelworld Editor Colm Hanratty with the help of fellow Hostelworlder Eoin White, they filtered out the good from the bad to thirty videos. Then they looked at all these once more to see what video truly captured everything about backpacking. It was an extremely tough decision, but in the end there could be only winner - a video entitled 'My Amigos' by Australian Grace Conlan.
