Kennebunkport, Maine (November 1, 2017) -- For the second consecutive year, GLP Films, an award-winning content marketing agency specializing in travel trade storytelling and content marketing, won first place in the 2017 “Adventure in Motion” film contest. The Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA)’s 4th Annual “Adventure in Motion” film contest has established itself as a coveted travel industry competition, bringing in over 140 film submissions from leading travel brands around the world. The winning film, “The Man at the End of the World,” was determined during a live vote by over 850 travel trade professionals at the Adventure Travel World Summit (ATWS) 2017 in Salta, Argentina.
GLP Films produced the winning film in partnership with Turismo Chile as part of a strategic content marketing campaign to support the emerging travel destination of Tierra del Fuego, Chile. The campaign features story-driven content centered around authentic local characters and their connections to sustainable tourism development in the rugged and remote region at the southern tip of Chile, known as “the end of the world”. The winning film, “The Man at the End of the World,” features Tierra del Fuego through the eyes of one of its original pioneers, Don Germán. The film explores the estancia way of life; a life born out of isolation and a passion for working the land, and ultimately questions whether tourism could be the thing that saves it.
"There is a very specific vision and strategy behind our award-winning content marketing campaign work”, said Rob Holmes, Founder and Chief Strategist of GLP Films. “We always want to create award-winning storytelling for all of our partners, but it is more than that. We also want our content and storytelling to engage the entire travel industry (trade to consumers), along with driving long-term sustainable tourism development and conservation for emerging and established destinations and travel brands. For us and our global partners, achieving that collaborative success within the entire travel trade industry is what our work is all about."
As the winner of the 2017 “Adventure in Motion” film contest, “The Man at the End of the World” will be showcased on AFAR.com and continue to receive exposure from the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) and industry partners. Additional supporting partners for the production of the film include Avianca, Eagle Creek, Vibram, and Rhino Camera Gear. Watch the winning film at www.glpfilms.com/end-of-the-world-film.
