News Update: The World’s First Instagram Film Festival Winners Announced
The winner of the Royal Caribbean International Instagram Film Festival was announced yesterday onboard Voyager of the Seas. The competition asked Australians and New Zealanders to submit a 15-second video of “WOW” moments from their life. “We were literally ‘wowed’ by the generosity of people who shared their special moments with us for the InstaFilmFest,” said Adam Armstrong, Regional Commercial Director Asia-Pacific, Royal Caribbean International.
The winning entry follows the delightful reaction of three year old Harry (Santa’s number one fan) when he realises St. Nick has come to pay him a house visit, running up to him to give him a high five. The moment was captured by Harry’s aunt, Kristy Rowe, who says she felt lucky to be in the right place at the right time: “It brought tears to my eyes to see Harry’s reaction and seeing my dad dressed up as Santa.” Kristy has won a “money-can’t-buy” trip to New York where she will enjoy one of the historic inaugural voyages on the world’s newest superliner Quantum of the Seas which will be launched in November. In a special surprise for the ten finalists, they were all rewarded with a cabin onVoyager of the Seas’ one-night cruise in December this year; a special ‘preview’ event to showcase the features of her multi-million dollar refurbishment before commencing her next Sydney season.
Noel Sadler took out the People’s Choice award for his time-lapsed video of sailing into Sydney Harbour, and has won a two night cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas. To watch the videos and learn more about the campaign, visit: instafilmfestival.com.au
