Incredible India, an initiative by the Ministry of Tourism - Government of India, in association with content-based digital solutions provider Trivone Digital Services Pvt Ltd, has launched a short film contest for travelers to promote tourism by depicting pristine destinations within the country.
The contest, open to both Indians and foreign nationals, aims to promote unexplored destinations and encourage visitors to share their travel adventures. Anyone who loves traveling and capturing those moments can upload travel videos of less than 3 minutes' duration, on the Pixel13 website to showcase the best of their experiences.
Pixel13 invites videos that portray best destinations, travel experiences and guidelines to visit lesser-known places.
Contestants have to be aged 18 or above to participate in this free online contest by filling the registration form on the website. Thereafter, they are free to upload the short films, which will be judged a jury combined with an online poll, which will be initiated once the call for entries closes down.
Filmmaker Singeetham Srinivasa Rao will be heading the jury.
The short-film adjudged as the 'Best Film' based on the online poll and jury will receive a prize worth Rs 50,000 sponsored by the hospitality partners, Royal Orchid Hotels.
Speaking about the campaign, L Subramanyan, founder and CEO - Trivone, said, "We are happy to join hands with Incredible India to promote Indian tourist destinations globally. Our aim is to get tourists to document and articulate their experience through a short video film that can be accessed by anyone who visits the website. We also think that such a venture can create awareness of little known places within the country which have thus far remained unexplored."
