80 days at Vancouver Airport: the finalists

96 videos were submitted and reviewed. Now you can view and vote for your favorite video from among the five finalists in Vancouver International Airport’s contest to choose one person to live in and report from the airport for 80 days.

The finalists range in age from 22 to 36 and, according to the contest rules, are all residents of British Columbia.

The winner of the Live@YVR contest will move into the airport on Aug. 17 and live there full time for 80 days using an airport-supplied camera and editing equipment to tell stories about what they see going on inside the terminals, behind the scenes and on Sea Island, the area surrounding the airport.

It won’t be such a hardship: the winner will have a room (single occupancy) at The Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel and receive vouchers for three meals a day, a complimentary mobile phone and a stipend of approximately $15,000.

To watch the videos and cast a vote, see the YVR website.
