Congratulations and thank you to the Bahamas Tourist Office team who worked so hard to make the campaign a success and all the contributing agencies at winning the Best Use of Social Media Travolution 2010 Award! on-IDLE couldn't be more proud in being a part of this build from inception to attendance of the award ceremony.

The Bahamas 14 Islands Film Challenge campaign was launched in October 2009, with the 14 finalists each making a film on one of the 14 selected Islands to win a prize of £14,000. The competition was won by Robin Schmidt, announced at the screening and prestigious award ceremony held at Bafta in March 2010.

The campaign was a great success for the Bahamas Tourist Office UK, generating much publicity and showcasing the incredible Islands of the Bahamas in a new light.

Working with FKC London on the design, on-IDLE programmed a unique video player and built the fully content managed website to cope with the various stages of a competition - from call to entries, through to submissions, semi-finalists, finalists and winners.

Non-filmmakers could also participate as 'Armchair Critics', voting for their favourite entry, and encouraged to share the content with friends. The website was supported by a Facebook group and Twitter feed - which was also streamed back to the website.
