Bangkok, 20 March 2019 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is launching its second TAT Newsroom “Blogger Thailand” competition for international bloggers residing in the Kingdom, offering six successful applicants the chance to go on an exclusive three-day itinerary.
Campaign dates for submissions run from 1 April to 31 May, 2019, with trip dates proposed for July 2019. The competition is open to bloggers residing in Thailand with an established, active blog (website) plus at least one main social media account with serious engagement.
This category accepts submission of photos, videos, or blogs that highlight off-the-beaten track Thai destinations or unseen experiences around Thailand. The entry can cover any of the following subjects: local Thai culinary tours, less crowded natural attractions, local Thai festivals and folk performances, unique Thai traditions, homestays and community markets.
The competition accepts only one entry per applicant. It can be a blog, vlog or photo (all content should be submitted in English only).
- Entry blogs must be from 400 to 500 words long with up to five complementary photos illustrating each story. Each photo should be submitted via a link to a media file on the entrant’s blog (website), or a link to an Instagram post.
- Entry vlogs from 60 to 90 seconds in length should be submitted via a link to the video on YouTube or Facebook.
- Entry photos should be submitted via a link to post on Instagram and should be titled with the text that accurately describes the image in brief, stating where the image was taken in Thailand.
Applicants should create well-composed entries that are organically beneficial to the Thai tourism industry by promoting the country’s good image. Only approved entries will be published for the short-listed selection process by the TAT Newsroom Team, supported by colleagues from the TAT’s International PR Division Team.
The TAT Newsroom team recorded a number of entries to the main competition from bloggers residing in Thailand. These submissions have automatically been entered into the second competition and are eligible if they meet contest criteria.
