Deadline: August 2, 2019

Entries are invited for the UNWTO Tourism Video Competition 2019. The 23rd session of the General Assembly will feature the 4th edition of the UNWTO Tourism Video Competition.

The competition will feature two categories:

  • “Outstanding Country Promotional Videos”, paying tribute to the importance of multimedia for marketing tourism destinations; and
  • “Exceptional Stories of Sustainable Tourism”, a new category, aimed underscoring tourism’s contribution to sustainable development, in line with UNWTO’s commitment to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

The winners of the 4th edition of the UNWTO Tourism Video Competition will be announced during the 23rd session of the General Assembly.
