Putting Algarve on moviemakers’ map: Tivoli Marina Vilamoura to host first World Trailer Awards

The Algarve has been selected to host the first ever World Trailer Awards at the Tivoli Marina Vilamoura hotel on February 26.

“This will be a big international event where some of the biggest names in the industry will be joining us and putting the Algarve on the moviemakers’ map,” says Spy Manor Productions, which will host the event.

Spy Manor adds that the organisers have managed to secure some “very big names in the industry as judges and media partners, so it’s going to get a lot of International coverage”.

“The event will be streamed and will promote the Algarve as a hot location for the industry. As with everything we do, our goal is to put the Algarve on the map as a versatile, accessible, and welcoming filming location,” the production company says.

The World Trailer Awards have been launched as an international edition of The Golden Trailers award show and aim to “honour outstanding marketing excellence in 32 categories across cinema, television, gaming, podcasting & radio, streaming and social media” in seven global regions: Africa, Asia, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, Middle East & North Africa and North America.

“With the dramatic increase in global connectivity and game-changing technologies, creators and storytellers, inventors and entrepreneurs are re-defining content creation and audiences at staggering speeds,” organisers say.

“The work of the entertainment marketers to discover and deliver audiences has never been more challenging or important than it is today. World markets, new entertainment properties and platforms all require compelling marketing strategies and creativity for success and with them a new forum for world-wide professional recognition,” they add.

In other words, the goal was to create “a new global competition offering unique opportunities for marketers and creatives to have their work seen by a global professional audience”.

Organisers stress that the structure and submission process ensure a level playing field and equal opportunity for all. Marketing professionals from around the world will review and score the submissions ensuring that each entrant’s work is competing fairly for recognition as outstanding in their region and then in the World Trailer Awards finals.

Winners for the inaugural World Trailer Awards 2022 will be announced on February 26 at Tivoli Marina Vilamoura followed by a virtual broadcast on February 27 on Deadline.com
