CHILE WILL WELCOME WINNERS FROM 4 CONTINENTS
After a successful first edition held in Buenos Aires (Argentina) last November 2016, in which, advertising, public relations, digital and design agencies from the five continents, signed up, WINA – World Independent Awards – presents a new edition, in a new period and with two simultaneous venues.
Chile has been chosen as the venue for the second edition of the Festival, because of its infrastructure, independent advertising industry and its natural and architectural environment. Another reason was the outstanding pariticipation that the southern country had in WINA’s last edition. Regarding this, Mauricio Rodriguez Vargas, CMO of the festival, says: “Santiago is a very interesting business center at a regional level and Chile has always been characterized as one of the leading countries of the service industry in the continent”.
SANTIAGO: INDEPENDENT CREATIVITY CAPITAL AND TOURISM JEWEL
Santigo surrounds the tourists with the majestic Andes mountain range and a cold climate, which in winter allows visitors to practice winter sports in places such as Valle Nevado, La Parva, Farallones, El Colorado and Lagunillas. Likewise, Santiago is also well known by offering a variety of cultural plans, with 40 galleries and 30 museums which bring the opportunity to learn about art, history and appreciate the architectural and modern beauty that can be found in the city.
WINNERS MAY DECIDE BETWEEN SANTIAGO AND BARCELONA
Having two venues brings versatility to the festival. So participating multinational agencies and independent networks, once confirmed as winners, will decide where they want to claim their award. This year WINA presents a new edition with many changes that will bring the festival closer to more countries, in a synergy of digital agencies, public relations, visual identity, in house, production and media centers, among other options within a giant and growing independent advertising industry.
Chile will be waiting for you, the 28th and 29th of June, as the american host for the award ceremony, in addition, WINA 2017 will have conferences, workshops, trade fair, contacts agenda, closing party and jury forum.
