BBC Thailand now its own Competition!

In 2017, the Thailand Track Round was introduced as a separate competition pathway for teams representing Thai Academic Institutions to have a reserved spot in the Semi-final Round. This year, with restrictive international travel, we decided to keep the Global rounds virtual but to break off the Thailand rounds to be its own standalone competition. And so, BBC Thailand 2021 will be hosted online with its own Semi-final and Final Rounds! The Winner of BBC Thailand 2021 will still be awarded a postion of Semi-finalist in BBC Global 2021, but the competition for the spot will be more hard-fought, with more teams, more rounds, and more judges.

Competition Cash Prizes – Come take your share!
