Payment of fees
- The Application fee of GCM Youth Summit is 35 USD.
- Applicant must have a PayPal account or credit card ready for the payment of the fees. The Unique Transaction ID number provided by PayPal should be pasted on the online Application form.
- The Application will only be completed once the Applicant has uploaded their videos, fees and application form they will get a notification from the GCM Team up to three business days.
Few Video instructions are given below
- What should the video cover: In their video, applicants should very briefly introduce themselves and then address the following questions:
- Please tell us something about your activism, community work, entrepreneurial activity or volunteering. What do you do?
- What aspects of it do you find most gratifying/rewarding? · What aspects do you find most difficult? · Why do you do it? · How do you think this will change things in your community? · What is your motivation to attend this specific Global Changemakers event? What do you want to achieve as a Changemaker?
- Duration of the video: The video must not be longer than two minutes. Videos longer than those two minutes (+/- five seconds) will not be considered. Therefore, it is important that the answers to the questions above are to the point.
- The resolution should be no higher than 640×480.
- Editing and well-produced Video: If applicants wish to edit their videos from more than one take, or if they want to add captions, photos or other materials, they are welcome to do so. However, a well delivered, single-take video of the applicant speaking directly to the camera is just as likely to impress. Applicants should remember that they are not addressing a camera, though, but a team of real people who are looking for potential Changemakers.
- Applicants must note that the sound on the video needs to be clear and audible – if applicants wish to record their videos outside, they may want to use a microphone or, at least, make sure that there isn’t too much noise that makes it difficult to understand them.
- Tips to ‘perform’ in front of the camera
- Participants are suggested to make their video by installing various video editing software,e.g., Windows Movie Maker or iMovie, rather than stopping the recording every time they are making.
- Technical Problems in Uploading the video
- The participant should check the resources of the YouTube, if still they are unable to upload, they must contact the GCM website. All the technical problems of the video will be entertained only before the deadline, i.e, 31 January, 2017.
- It is to be to be noted that technical support is only provided on business days.
- Sharing and posting the video with the Global Changemakers Team
- Participants must send their video firstname.lastname@example.org. GCM team will not accept any Email attachment. The longer videos will be automatically filtered.
- The applicant can also share and make their videos public. Once they fill in their application form, they will be asked to provide their video’s direct link. This link will look as follows: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxxxxxxxxxx (the eleven digits at the end are different for every video.) the videos that are set to private cannot be view by everyone.
