City tourism council launches search for promotion video

by Elsa S. Subong

ILOILO CITY, Jan. 9 (PIA6) -- As more Filipinos are getting “on board” with the new Philippine Tourism slogan, the Iloilo City Tourism Council (ICTC) is embarking on a search for best tourism videos that can highlight what is “fun” and distinct in the city.

“It is time for us to discover what we can be truly proud of as Ilonggos and set our eyes on the potentials,” Jimena said.

ICTC spokesperson Roy Gatpatan said in a radio interview said that the Iloilo Dinagyang festival should be promoted that best way possible.

Gatpatan said through video productions, people can see how well Iloilo can be portrayed or captured as a tourism destination.

The search which the ICTC has launched includes features and teaser/ads, highlighting an Ilonggo cultural or religious practice, arts, food, product, heritage, history, focusing on the tagline, “My City, My Pride.”

The ICTC said the contest is open to all video enthusiasts. The winning entries may become the city’s official promotional material to be played in terminals, ports, and airports.

In interviews by the Philippine Information Agency, local folks said tourists will surely find Iloilo lots of fun. (JCM/ESS/PIA-Iloilo)
