From these applications, the Top 100 applicants will be selected and asked to create a second video.

After the Top 50 are announced, the public will be able to show support for their favorite applications in a second round of voting. From the Top 50 applicants, Cancun.com will review the applications and select the Top 5 to attend our week-long Interview Event in Cancun.
