Tourism Malaysia Commercial - Feel like a Star selected as the 'Best International Tourism Ad'

MUMBAI, September 10, 2013…..Tourism Malaysia’s advertisement has not only evoked delightful feelings among the audiences but has also earned the title of the Best International Tourism ad among all other tourism advertisements.

The Tourism Malaysia ad –Feel like a Star, was selected by the Juries of the Advisory Panel for ‘Thomas Edison Advertisement (TEA) Award’ as the ‘Best International Tourism Ad’ and was conferred the title of ‘Journey of Delight’. The award was presented by Honorable Minister of State for Industry & Commerce, Mr. Sudarshan Nachiappana midst a gathering of dignitaries and celebrities on the 9th of September in Chennai.

On the receipt of this prestigious title, Ms. Sarala V Pathar, Deputy Director, Tourism Malaysia, South India said, “Tourism Malaysia has always shown an inclination towards promotions and support in India. We have put in our best creative and technical efforts behind this campaign and nothing can make us happier than the fact that people have accepted and liked our advertisement. It’s a great honour to earn the title of the best international tourism advertisement; it’s a prestigious opportunity for us and our team.”

The winning ad shows a young couple celebrating their love amidst the serene and luxurious spots of Malaysia. The advertisement beautifully portrays their playfulness towards each other as they visit an array of exotic locations.
