Ferndale, WA (PRWEB) December 12, 2007
Rtravel, a new travel video and networking site for travellers, has launched a travel video competition with a $1000 cash prize.
The new site is specially constructed and organised for travel videos, with sections of the site organised by different locations and different travel categories such as sightseeing videos, adventure videos and travel services.
The emphasis is on user-produced amateur videos that people upload themselves, rather than showing professionally-made travel documentaries. The site, which has been set up by young people from the UK, who love travel and who have travelled extensively, is designed to be a fun place for travellers to share their travel experiences and exchange information.
Rtravel believes that since it is now much easier and cheaper for people who are travelling to make videos using mobile phones and digital cameras etc, those travellers will chose to make short video clips while on their travels rather than just taking photos. The site is designed to capitalise on this trend.
The site, which is completely free to use, attempts to combine both the Youtube style format of watching and uploading videos, with the social networking format of sites such as Facebook. It enables members to upload and watch travel videos, photos and blogs, as well as to communicate with other members on the site by making friends and sending messages. The inventory of travel videos is already growing rapidly and the site is logging visitors from throughout the world. Rtravel plans to add many more features as the site grows.
A section of the Rtravel site is also dedicated to travel services where any travel related companies such as hotels, resorts, travel agents, airlines etc can upload promotional videos, for free promotion on the site.
As part of the site launch, Rtravel has opened a travel video competition where the best and most popular travel videos uploaded will be awarded cash prizes.
