“It is a great privilege for me to receive the Grand Prix Award for our new Incredible India promotional film. The film has been used extensively in our global marketing campaigns and has received worldwide recognition,” Ms. Selja said.

The promotional film has been produced in collaboration with the Experience India Society — a successful public-private sector initiative working for the promotion of tourism in the country.

“The film successfully showcases, India’s diverse tourism products in order to attract international traveller to our country and this recognition will encourage us to move forward with greater enthusiasm,” she said.
