TOURISM NT’S LOCATION SCOUTS NOMINATED FOR WEBFEST BERLIN AWARD
Tourism NT’s ambitious web series Location Scouts has been shortlisted in this year’s prestigious Webfest Berlin awards, from more than 8,000 international entries.
Nominated in the ‘Branded’ category, Location Scouts is the only Australian entry shortlisted in its category, and is up against entries from Italy, Denmark and South Korea.
Tourism NT Executive General Manager of Marketing Tony Quarmby said the nomination demonstrates how Tourism NT has successfully incorporated the experiences, locations and stunning landscapes of the Territory into an entertaining content series.
“We’re thrilled Location Scouts has been nominated for Webfest Berlin. The series is a true showcase of some of the Territory’s most iconic destinations.
“Of the thousands of entries into the festival, Location Scouts is standing on its own merits against international contenders and we’re enormously proud.
“To top it all off, Webfest Berlin provides just another opportunity to share the amazing Northern Territory, its landscapes, culture and cheeky sense of humour with audiences around the world,” said Quarmby.
Created by the award-winning Van Vuuren Brothers, the web series is set in the Northern Territory and is a hilarious behind-the-scenes look at blockbuster Aussie rom-com Top End Wedding.
The six-part comedy series follows the story of fictional veteran location scout, Steve Grogan and his millennial off-sider Morgan, as they roam the Top End in search for the ultimate NT locations for the Top End Wedding movie.
