Dominica Film Challenge Kicks-Off

DOMINICA_CHALLENGE_BLOG_01Six teams have been selected by the DDA – Discover Dominica Authority to participate in the inaugural Dominica Film Challenge.

The lucky teams have been invited to the Island for a creative expedition to uncover Dominica’s hidden treasures – through words, pictures, and film and were chosen among 1,100+ applicants around the world.

The teams will spend a week in Dominica and are invited to tell the story of the island through a short film, travelogue, photography project, or some other creative social media endeavor.

Chief Executive Officer and Director of Tourism, Mr. Colin Piper said he welcomes the opportunity to showcase a truly authentic Nature Island experience through the lenses and written words of the expedition teams.





Teams are currently competing against each other for the creative challenge portion of the expedition, with prizes being awarded to the teams that best portray the image of Dominica and their search to discover their inner explorer.

This challenge will serve as a means for raising awareness of Dominica’s natural beauty, attractions, and cultural heritage through their social media networks.

Mr. Michael Kraabel, Executive Producer of the Dominica Film Challenge stated, not only are the teams talented, but they have an amazing social media following and influence, that when combined amounts to well over 3 million people.

The challenge began on Sunday March 23rd and ends on Friday March 28th 2014.  The final project submissions will be posted online for a public vote in mid-June.
