Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is pleased to announce that the final results of the #BLOGYOURTHAILAND contest by Tourism Authority of Thailand (India Offices) are out and we have the winners! The grand success of this pan-India blogging/vlogging contest lies in the fact that top bloggers from across India came forward to support Amazing Thailand and its varied tourism offerings through their blogging canvas and expressed their creative minds, following the contest theme like never before.
The excellent response received this year from the #BLOGYOURTHAILAND contest split into three categories saw the power of blogging, through beautiful articles, photo stories, and videos supported by excellent social media, highlighting how the Indian bloggers and influencers love the Land of Smiles and how much they are looking forward to revisiting Thailand once the opportunity resumes. In the mighty age of social media when images or small videos on the Instagram and Facebook or a sentence or two on the Twitter rule; Indian bloggers proved how well-crafted long-format articles still maintain good value and engagement.
This year’s contest was focused on interdependent travel blogs and vlogs. It was reassuring to find reader engagements in the independent blog posts about the Thai destinations, the Thai experiences, and the Thai cuisines based on the articles. Nevertheless, TAT is equally happy with the cutting-edge social media every blogger and vlogger embraced and followed to promote their content. Organized by TAT New Delhi Office and TAT Mumbai Office, this year’s contest split into three sections had a forwardlooking theme: “Rediscover | Relax | Rejuvenate | Revive | Rejoice | Reboot” with the ulterior intention of #ResetInThailand.
A total of nine (9) winners (top three in three categories) receive hi-tech gadgets and certificates. A select group of fifteen (15) secondary winners across categories receive gifts and certificates. A total of three (3) SUPER WINNERS (one from each category) receive SUPER PRIZE: TRIP TO THAILAND (conditions apply). “In 2020, for the #THROWBACKTHAILAND video contest, we received a huge number of videos. This year the contest was made open for articles, photos, and videos for all types of content producers to play with freedom. We were surprised with not only the number of articles we received, but also how creatively many bloggers embedded videos and photos in their entries.
We are very pleased with the quality of the entries. We enjoyed reading the blogs, especially their experiences on exploring unknown destinations which are very appropriate under the New Normal. I congratulate the winners and every participant and look forward to staying connected with them,” said Vachirachai Sirisumpan, Director – TAT (New Delhi).
“As our mission was to not only reconnect with the established bloggers who have been to Thailand many times, but also to encourage the upcoming new bloggers to write or produce content on Thailand based on research and market study, we saw many entries who made efforts accordingly and we will consider working with them in the future. The variety of content helps us strategize better. I congratulate all the winners and participants for making this contest a grand success,” commented Cholada Siddhivarn, Director – TAT (Mumbai).
