The nine winners from Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam were invited to a workshop in Wellington where they spent three days collaborating on a smartphone short film on ecotourism.
In addition they worked on a nature conservation project with “Ngā Uruora” to offset some of the carbon emissions of their flights. This led to the creation of a further short film.
