The Applications for the Tourism Media Award THE GOLDEN CITY GATE 2013 Enter the Final Phase

This January, tourism companies still have the chance to submit their marketing campaigns for the annual Tourism Media Award THE GOLDEN CITY GATE. The awarding ceremony during the ITB Berlin 2013 will again set new standards in the tourism marketing sector.

Berlin, Germany, January 17, 2013 --( Whether it is a promotional film, website, print or online campaign or innovative marketing ideas such as roadshows and music videos, in 2013 the Tourism Media Award – THE GOLDEN CITY GATE again honors the outstanding marketing initiatives of the tourism industry. Until January 31st, 2013, destinations, tour operators, hotels, event locations as well as any other ‘tourism creators’ can submit their entries online at or via mail. Furthermore, this year for the first time a special award will be given out among the previous award winners for ‘Most Views On Youtube’.

Wolfgang Jo Huschert, the initiator of the Tourism Media Award – THE GOLDEN CITY GATE, is optimistic for this year: “It is our goal for 2013 to exceed last year’s submissions of about 100 film and multimedia productions from 28 countries.” In this, he is strongly supported by his new cooperation partner, the tourism marketing agency COMPASS from Cologne, who is responsible for the brand-new internet presence of the Tourism Media Award, including website and facebook page.

The award ceremony and presentation of the winning entries is held on March 7th, 2013, during the International Tourism Fair (ITB) Berlin (ITB Cinema, hall 1.2). Since the entire tourism industry gets together on this occasion, the guest list each year represents the ‘who is who’ of the international tourism sector.

12 years of experience prove that the Tourism Media Award – THE GOLDEN CITY GATE brings a significant increase in publicity and recognition for the award winners, which is also due to the media coverage by CNN, BBC and ‘Deutsche Welle’ received in previous years. However, all participants and spectators benefit from the Tourism Media Award, as it provides an orientation platform for innovation and new benchmarks in tourism marketing. In this way the Tourism Media Award – THE GOLDEN CITY GATE promotes the steady improvement of marketing standards in the tourism industry.

About the Tourism Media Award – THE GOLDEN CITY GATE
The Tourism Media Award – THE GOLDEN CITY GATE is the only competition in the tourism industry that honors film and multimedia productions at an international level – including movies, commercials, websites, print and online campaigns as well as road shows and music videos. In order to increase its recognition at an international level, the prefix ‘Tourism Media Award’ has recently been added. The award winners are destinations and tourism companies themselves and not their assigned filmmakers or advertising agencies. The competition has been setting new standards in tourism marketing for 12 years now. Since the first award ceremony of THE GOLDEN CITY GATE in 2001, more than 800 contributions from around the world were evaluated by a jury of 50 independent experts from the tourism, film and marketing industries. The close partnership with the ITB Berlin emphasizes the high relevance of the award: BBC, CNN and ‘Deutsche Welle’ regularly report about the award ceremony of THE GOLDEN CITY GATE in Berlin.
