Tourism Video Competition

The 25th session of the General Assembly will feature the 6th edition of the UNWTO Tourism Video Competition.

Following the hiatus in international travel, the sector has recognized the need to put sustainability, peace, innovation, quality jobs, and the empowerment of women and youth at the forefront. In the post-pandemic recovery phase, digital and audiovisual communication is now more relevant than ever for framing these priorities and reaching tourists themselves, as well as public and private stakeholders. 

The competition aims to highlight the most successful videos in two categories, representing an opportunity to reposition tourism as a key sector for people, planet and prosperity:

  • Promotion and the Decade of Action: This category looks for notable examples of how Member States are linking their promotional videos to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development through references to one or several of the 17 Global Goals (SDGs). Direct mentions to the SDGs do not need to be made; indirect references to one or more Goals are also to be considered in this category.
  • Exceptional Stories of Sustainable Tourism: This category looks for notable examples that showcase the human face of tourism and clearly illustrate the positive social impact the sector can have by generating optimism and opportunities for all.

Quick facts:

  • Member States are encouraged to submit videos for both categories. One winning video will be chosen per region for both categories.
  • Affiliate Members are encouraged to submit videos for the "Exceptional Stories of Sustainable Tourism" category.

The winners of the 6th edition of the UNWTO Tourism Video Competition will be announced during the 25th session of the General Assembly and reflected in official communications.
