“This is one of the most well-received promotional campaigns from the Croatian National Tourist Board (CNTB). Our past campaigns have reached more than 60 million people in the four previous contests. Due to its overwhelming success, we have decided to continue the campaign this year, with some former event participants expressing an interest in another opportunity to win the ultimate grand prize. The positive response is exactly why we anticipate this year’s contest to have an excellent response and leverage our promotional results during the implementation of the campaign, which showcases Croatia as a country with a rich and wide tourism offering to avid travelers and a destination where everyone can have their own interesting experiences,” stated CNTB’s Director Kristjan Stanicic.
The "Epic Week" campaign allows participants to create their ideal vacation via a specially designed website that includes 219 activities to build their own ultimate Croatian itinerary. Participants can choose from locations, sights, cities, gastronomic, and activities they would like to experience on an epic visit to Croatia. To enter, participants select their activities and share on social networks and encourage followers to like their selections. Participants can choose their bucket list or “Epic Week,” and the contestants who receive the highest number of votes, or likes, for their selection will be entered as a finalist and be contacted by the Croatian National Tourist Board, to submit an application within 5 days after receiving the e-mail, explaining why they indeed should win the trip. The winner will subsequently be selected by a Jury and will win their selected trip for them and a guest.
In addition to their own selected activities, the CNTB, as part of this ongoing campaign, will award an additional thematic day of rest and stay in one of the Croatian destinations to the selected program of winners. An additional thematic day will be tailored to the already selected experiences and may include, for example, rafting, kayaking, zip line, rock climbing, etc.
The last version of this campaign, "Epic Week - Last Call," was in September 2018, and reached 11 million people, and more than 8,000 new fans were added to the Croatian tourist community's channels on social networks. At that time, more than 13,000 contestants participated in the contest, and the winner was Angelo Elefante from Italy who, from the offered experiences, chose the tasting of Soparnica and Brac Vitali, a visit to Split, photographing the "home in house,” visiting Starogradsko polje and photograph session with the famous Dalmatian, a known Croatian dog breed.
Stretching along the Adriatic Sea, just a stone’s throw from Central Europe, Croatia is a country defined by a rich cultural legacy. Today, history perfectly combines with a youthful spirit and vibrant energy that prove irresistible to those seeking diversity. Breath-taking natural beauty, endless coastlines, diverse gastronomy, adventure, sports and wellness, can be enjoyed all year round. Whether exploring the old city of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, island hopping around the Split archipelago, truffle hunting in Istria, paragliding across the Plitvice Lakes, delving into Zagreb’s streets and hidden passages, birdwatching in Kopacki rit, partying the night away at Zrce beach in Novalja or taking time out with the family on Zlatni Rat beach, there truly is something for everyone in Croatia.
