Get some inspiration from our past contest winners!

Join our 2023 winner, Colin, as he takes us on his incredible journey through Australia & New Zealand this summer!

Colin’s moving short film shows the spirit of a TFT summer along with the beauty and adventure of solo traveling. His creativity and clear skill for production is admirable and inspiring.


Our 2023 runner up Kate takes us along on her experience traveling through Norway, Denmark, Sweden, & Finland on a Scandinavian Adventure!

From the Norwegian countryside to the fairytale magic of the Tivoli Gardens, Kate shares it all with us through her adorable digital scrapbook.

With an abundance of rolling hills, plunging cliffs, emerald green grass, and fairytale castles, you can’t help but fall in love with the unique beauty of Scotland and Ireland! And Shalini gave us a front row seat.

We were blown away by her creativity and passion for storytelling.

Join the video winner of My TFT Summer, Grace Reppy, as she transports us to Thailand on her Elephant Service trip.

Grace’s video immerses us into the vibrant culture of Thailand, captures service work with the endearing elephants, and shows her flourishing friendships along the way. She truly encompassed the excitement and spirit of a TFT summer. We feel as if we are right by her side – as a traveler, not a tourist!
