Sustainable Travel International Joins GLP Films to Introduce a New Storytelling Competition to Support Global Sustainability

Innovative “GLP Sustainability Storytelling Competition 2022” Offers Winners a Custom Video and Global Promotion By GLP’s Award-Winning Storytelling Team and Sustainable Travel International

Kennebunkport, Maine, USA (May 9, 2022) – GLP Films (GLP), the leading sustainability storytelling agency, is hosting its inaugural GLP Sustainability Storytelling Competition. Born from GLP’s mission to promote sustainability through storytelling, the company invites organizations of any size, from any industry, to submit their untold story of sustainability for a chance to win a custom video produced and distributed by GLP and Sustainable Travel International in addition to other global partners.

The competition has six categories that cover critical issues around climate and environment, community, and social justice: Sustainable & Regenerative Tourism, Sustainable Food, Environmental Justice, Conservation & Nature, Communities & Cultural Preservation, and Best of the Rest, to capture outstanding stories outside the main categories. Top-tier panelists from diverse industries around the world will review submissions and identify winners based on story potential, greatest need, previous exposure, and positive impact.

The hope is that storytelling can make a positive difference in the global outlook. We need inspiring stories, more than ever, to drive environmental and social restoration forward. Founder and Chief Strategist of GLP, Rob Holmes, says, “When the pandemic hit, we took some time to reevaluate our role in the industry. We’ve recommitted to our mission of sustainability and to use what we do best — storytelling — to help our industry recover, reposition, and build back better. We recognize that sustainability needs to be a fundamental part of doing business across all industries. And this competition will help meet that need.”

Each Category Prize Winner will be awarded a GLP remote video production package and promotion by GLP and partners: AFAR, G Adventures, Intrepid, KindTraveler, Lifestraw, Planeterra, Sustainable Travel International, Tastemade Travel, Transformational Travel Council, Travelife, Cayuga Hotels, TravPro, and others.

In addition, one Grand Prize Winner will be selected from the six Category Prize Winners and will receive an on-location, full production video package by GLP. Once produced, this winning video will be globally promoted by GLP, Sustainable Travel International, and additional global partners. GLP has also partnered with Sustainable Travel International to offset the carbon emissions associated with the competition.

The GLP Sustainability Storytelling Competition will be open for submissions starting May 1, 2022, and will close July 31, 2022, at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time (New York). Multiple submissions highlighting different stories will be accepted from a single organization.
