WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Travel Video Awards (TVAs) will again be held at NAB Show on April 9 in Las Vegas. Created by Citizine Networks, Inc., the awards honor innovative and inspiring travel videos released in 2018 by independent filmmakers, the travel industry, media companies and lifestyle brands.
NAB Show attracts nearly 100,000 media, entertainment and technology professionals from around the world and will again serve as the presenting sponsor of the awards program. NAB Show will be held April 6-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The TVAs recognize a variety of distinguished cinematic and cutting-edge digital video content within two tracks. Self-financed projects will be recognized within the Independent Track. Projects from the travel industry, lifestyle brands and media companies will be recognized in the Industry Track. Winners from each track will receive distinction awards. Additionally, winners of the Nomad Award and two Audience Awards will receive cash prizes.
“Last year’s Travel Video Awards included nearly 400 entries from 26 countries across the globe,” said Citizine Founder and CEO Philip DeBevoise. “We look forward to building off that success at the 2019 NAB Show and connecting travel media and video professionals with companies at the upcoming NAB Show New York.”
Citizine will present The Power of Video in the $1 Trillion Travel Industry on October 17 as part of the 2018 NAB Show New York conference program. The session will explore the effect of video on consumer travel spending and how filmmakers, media service providers, brands and influencers can best develop and monetize their content. Following the session, Citizine will host a networking reception where attendees will have the opportunity to meet with creative and marketing executives from travel and luxury brands.
