Finalists To Be Featured on Yahoo Travel
(SEATTLE) August 18, 2014 – On August 1 of this year, the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA; www.adventuretravel.biz) launched its inaugural short film contest, Adventure in Motion. The ATTA is pleased to announce that the winning films will be featured on Yahoo Travel (www.yahoo.com/travel).
“Seeing these inspiring travel videos on the big screen will be a thrill for this community,” said ATTA President Shannon Stowell, “But the opportunity to see them go viral with the help of Yahoo Travel takes the Adventure in Motion idea to a whole new level.”
The contest, now known as Adventure in Motion: Film Contest with Yahoo Travel, is open to any tourism organization or business that has produced a travel film in the last year. Videos four minutes or less in length are eligible. The deadline for entry is August 22, 2014.
Up to eight finalists will be selected by a jury and have their films screened during the 2014 Adventure Travel World Summit in Ireland in October, where delegates will vote on a winner and a runner-up. All finalists will have their films featured on Yahoo Travel and receive social media promotion from Yahoo and the ATTA.
The ATTA is partnering with Yahoo Travel and Wilderness Ireland for this contest with the objective of celebrating creative storytelling and its role in inspiring adventure travel. Guidelines and the entry form can be found on the Adventure in Motion: Film Contest with Yahoo Travel page of the ATTA’s website.
