Again announced world-wide:
TOURA D'OR 2004 - Film Contest Sustainable Tourism   TO DO! 2004 - Contest Socially Responsible Tourism

The tourism contests organised by the Studienkreis für Tourismus und Entwicklung (Institute for Tourism and Development), "TOURA D'OR" and "TO DO!" are again announced worldwide from the beginning of May. The conditions of participation as well as application forms in German and English can either be downloaded via Internet or requested from the organiser.

The "TOURA D'OR film contest for sustainable tourism" addresses professional filmmakers, producers and those commissioning tourism-relevant films here in Germany and abroad. Awards will be given to productions which stand for a socially responsible, environmentally compatible and therefore sustainable tourism. Accepted are Video tapes in the format VHS / PAL in German or English and which have been produced within the period 2002 to 2004. The TOURA D'OR deadline for application is September 30th, 2004.

The "TO DO!- Contest for Socially Responsible Tourism" pursues almost the same objectives. But here the contest organiser is looking for tourism projects world-wide which have already been realised and where the different needs and interests of the local population is taken account of by involving the people in the planning and implementation process. Concepts and project ideas cannot be considered. As to the "TO DO! Contest Socially Responsible Tourism" both public and private institutions can compete and so can enterprises active in tourism. The TO DO! deadline for application is August 31h, 2004. This time, too, both contests are supported by national, church-related and other organisations.
