On 29 November ’22 in Florence, during the BTO setting, the “Italy Ambassador Awards” will be held with the support of the Region Tuscany and the patronage of ENIT.
The First Italian Award for the best influencers and bloggers from all over the World who promote Italy. This Award is a prestigious recognition highlighting the excellence and professionalism of the work of those who, with such commitment, want to highlight the qualities of Italy known excellently, both to foreigners and Italians.
An annual appointment dedicated to Made in Italy, beauty, culture, flavours and fragrances characterise wonderful Italy. The selection will end with the “Italy Ambassador Awards” event, which will feature the awards ceremony followed by the Gala Dinner in a wonderful location that the organisation does not yet wish to reveal.
In this first edition, we are giving more attention and relevance to the ‘Travel’ category, which has had a significant drop in sales due to the Pandemic. The collaboration with the Region of Tuscany is a virtuous example of promoting Italy in an increasingly competitive international tourism world.
The first edition of the “Italy Ambassador Awards” will have the honour of having as its patroness the splendid actress Maria Grazia Cucinotta, a world cinema icon and a perfect representative of Italy in the World.
This year we are proud to announce the prestigious and important jury for the event. As President of the Jury, we will have Giorgio Palmucci (former Enit president and advisor to the Ministry of Tourism). The jury committee of the Italy Ambassador Awards includes: Matteo Lunelli (President of Ferrari Trento and Alta Gamma), Davide Manzoni (Comfort Zone), Sonia Peronaci (Giallo Zafferano), Massimo Basile (Editor of Celebre Magazine World – Luxury Investment Magazine – Rinascimento Magazine), Anton Giulio Grande (Fashion Designer) Ludovica Casellati (Luxury Bike Hotels – Viaggi del Gusto), Monia Ronconi (Founder & Web Editor Hotel My Passion), Alberto Lupini (Italia a Tavola), Francesco Garofalo (Destinazione Basilicata).
The prizes are awarded following five categories: Travel – Luxury Lifestyle – Fashion – Food &Wine – Beauty&Spa. Each category is divided into five groups of followers: Micro – Junior – Expert – Advanced Blogger – Top Influencer.
Selection will take place through a Sustainability Contest; the Digital Expert Team will select the best 75 influencers who will advance to the Semifinals and be invited to the Nomination Ceremony and Gala Dinner, where the top 25 Best Italian Ambassadors will be awarded.
During the Contest, the influencers will create one post/video/reel, depending on the social media they have chosen to participate on (Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, TikTok). The theme to be selected from among sustainable tourism and responsible travel, healthy and sustainable eating, sustainable & slow fashion, wellness and sustainability. This choice was shared as the theme of sustainability is now more than ever the protagonist.
For influencers and bloggers, registration is already open on the Prize website and ends on 31 July 2022. The Contest has begun and will run until the end of August 2022. During the award ceremony, there will be no lack of gifts and surprises from Sponsors and Partners. For the partners and sponsors of the Award, it will be an opportunity to showcase themselves to an international audience and interact and make contact with 12 million passionate followers who are in love with the “Bel Paese”.
Already present are prestigious realities that have believed in this beautiful project: To name a few: Alpen Suite Hotel in Madonna di Campiglio, Hotel Orlando in Sardinia, 25Hourshotels in Florence, Gardacqua, Bidroom, and many others. At the conclusion of the Italy Ambassador Awards, the best influencers will have the opportunity to participate in a Blog Tour organised by the Region to discover and rediscover Tuscany’s outstanding cultural, food, wine, and spa heritage.
The statement by the Award’s founder, Svetlana Trushnikova, is emotional and far-sighted: “This recognition of social content creators is not only a source of pride, but thanks to their work on social media, it is possible to convey effective communication aimed at education, information, and respect for others and the environment. Today we have laid the foundation stone for constructing an important community of influencers who are aware of their ever-growing communicative responsibility to preserve the beauty of Italy for future generations.”
We just need to await this unmissable event, sure that it will undoubtedly be a great added value for the communication, development and promotion of “Bel Paese”.
