We recently called on young people from around the UK and Germany to take us on a virtual tour of their world as part of our video competition ‘Welcome to my World 2’.

In video clips of just 20 seconds, we asked to see a snapshot of young people’s lives, towns & cities, hobbies and more. From day in the life videos, to regional showcases…we received a wide array of creative videos from across the UK and Germany. Many thanks to everyone who took part!

The submitted videos were judged by our UK-German Connection team, who loved watching the fantastic entries sent in from both countries.

After much deliberation, two overall winners were chosen and two runners-up… congratulations!

Winning entries

Reila, Jude, Daniel and Joshua (17, Liverpool)

“This video shows the musical developmental heritage of the Beatles throughout their successful history.”

We were very impressed with the video from this group in Liverpool. We loved the group’s idea of using masks to hide their faces and felt that the video was an excellent homage to the city of Liverpool and the influence of the Beatles on regional identity.

Maximilian (12, Rutesheim)

“In meinem Video geht es um meine Hobbys und meinen Alltag in der Corona-Zeit.”

Max’s video stood out to our team, due to the clever framing of the shots and it’s effectiveness in showing us Max’s world in 2021. We felt as if we were living a day in Max’s life and were impressed with the creative way the video had been shot, edited and compiled.

Well done to Reila, Jude, Daniel, Joshua and Max!


Alongside our winning entries, we were also impressed with two further entries, which were awarded runner-up places. Congratulations Alice and Julia!

Alice (19, Manchester)

“My video shows as many different parts of Manchester as I could fit into the 20 second time limit. I tried to show different parts of the culture including the Gay Village, China town, some history of Manchester and graffiti from the Northern Quarter.”

Julia (13, Northern Ireland)

“My video shows my typical day.”
