RULES OF ENTRY for the Girona Counties G!

Awards for Tourism Communication 2013 The Girona Counties G! Awards for Communication are annually granted awards that the Costa Brava Girona Tourism Board created in order to acknowledge and reward the dissemination, promotion and recommendation work done by journalists worldwide for the benefit of travellers and of the tourist industry.


This invitation to enter is open to all natural or legal persons (i.e. individuals and companies) who present original work done on any communication medium (e.g. the printed press, radio, television, Internet and literary or cinematographic production) that fosters and disseminates the wealth, diversity and quality of the Girona counties’ tourism resources and products and provides publicity for the “Costa Brava” and/or “Pirineu de Girona” trademarks. Three categories of prizes are awarded: – Works published in audiovisual media (radio, television, cinema) – Works published in print media (newspapers, magazines, guides, books) – Works published in digital media (posts on blogs, Web page articles, videos and contributions on social channels)

Special conditions

For the purposes of the award, consideration will be given to original works published or broadcast between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013, in any language and in any part of the world.

Those who submit works recognised and awarded prizes likewise provide their authorisation for such works to be publicly disseminated through the communication channels of the Board. The candidature form, duly completed, shall have to be accompanied by the original works or a copy thereof in the case of radio and television.
