The annual Travel Video Awards (TVAs) honor innovative and inspiring travel videos released in 2018 by both Independent filmmakers and brands from across the globe. Nominees will be invited to attend the Travel Video Award ceremony held at NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 9, 2019.
The 2018 TVAs were the inaugural awards program recognizing filmmaking excellence in and around the travel industry. With hundreds of entries from 26 countries and numerous global brands, indie filmmaker Kevin Clerc clinched the NOMAD Award for his film Mexico, and the Croatia National Tourism Board and travel host-vlogger Holly Tuggy, respectively, won the Audience Awards. View 2018 winners and nominees for a closer look at the first ever TVAs.
Each month the TVAs features an interview with a filmmaker and a brand or agency creating relevant, inspiring, sometimes trendsetting, sometimes groundbreaking content in the travel video industry.
It doesn’t take a film school degree to be a professional filmmaker. Director Ace Norton will be the first to tell you that. The filmmaker has traveled the globe working with musicians, and brands like Gucci, Lexus, and La Mer. The Travel Video Awards caught up with Norton to discuss his process, how he handles the physical stresses of constant travel, and what’s the key to balancing personal aesthetic with the needs of a client.
As the media landscape shifts in the digital age, established brands are navigating the transition into social media and online content with new talent and changes in format. With “Comfort Nation,” Food Network has ventured into an online-exclusive property, and was met with wide success. The Travel Video Awards spoke with producer Catriona Stuart about brand development, and how food is helping drive global travel.
