With the Top Spot Award, FMD took a marketing concept- that had already made headlines across industries in the past thanks to a symbiosis of intelligent partnerships- to the next round. The high-quality video and photo contributions by community members and the publication strategy by FMD have repeatedly created an unparalleled combination of quality and reach in the past.

Inspired by the Falcon Lens Award in Abu Dhabi 2018, Switzerland Tourism requested us to implement a similar campaign for several Alpine regions, resulting in at least 10 modern image videos for the destinations.
10 Filmmakers. 6 Partners. 4 Regions.
The Top Spot 2021 did not just focus on one destination, but on four different regions in Switzerland. This logistical challenge quickly turned out to be a true diversity bonus, because spectacular images and videos were used to draw attention to the tourist highlights of all regions. In addition to marketing regional attractions, local partners such as Mammut, Victorinox and Europcar also benefited from the resulting footage. The spectacle again formed an optimal combination of content, social media and event marketing according to FMD's philosophy.
FMD is known for spectacular productions at home and abroad and was also able to draw on many years of experience for this project. In addition to the logistical challenges and on-site organization, the team also ensured optimal cooperation between the partners as well as travel planning, mobility and on-site accommodation for the participants in Bern and each of the other four destinations.
In the heart of the campaign were the videos of the participants, which even exceeded the expectations of the FMD team and the partners thanks to a careful pre-selection of competitors. The invited influencers were also convincing in terms of content creation and they communicated the course of the competition on their channels during the 100 hours.
