World Nomads Travel Scholarship with Buffalo Tours

Go on assignment to Vietnam and have your video documentary broadcast on Nat Geo Adventure!
Mai Chau Valley, Vietnam Medical Trek
Applications close: July 5, 2009

Kick start your documentary career by going on assignment deep into the Mai Chau Valley with documentary producer Trent O'donnell (who filmed the Positive Footprints screened on Nat Geo Adventure Channel). Trekking with a team of 20 volunteer doctors who will be providing vital medical services to remote hill tribes, you will create your own short video documentary.
The lucky scholarship recipient will have their documentary considered for broadcast on Nat Geo Adventure! That's right - the holy grail that documentary makers work their whole lives to achieve, could be yours now!

Your assignment brief
* We'll fly you to Vietnam from your country of residence. You will join a Buffalo Tours trek with a team of volunteer doctors deep into the picturesque Mai Chau Valley. Their mission is to set up temporary health clinics to provide vital medical services to remote hill tribes, many of whom have never seen a Doctor before. Your mission is to tell their story.
* You need to be available between August 22 and September 2, 2009 to participate on the Medical Trek. * Under the mentorship of documentary film-maker Trent O'donnell you will shoot a video documentary about the Medical Trek.
* You will keep a daily diary about your time on the trip and upload this plus pictures you've taken to your World Nomads travel journal.
* You will edit together your 3 minute documentary and submit it to Nat Geo Adventure and World Nomads within 2 months of your return.

Assignment Location
Mai Chau is the heart of a beautiful valley that is a world away from the hustle of Hanoi, a verdant landscape of tapioca and sugar cane fields, and lush rice paddies. The stunning area is home to the ethnic White Thai, distantly related to tribes in Thailand, Laos and China.
