FLORENCE 29.11.22 – Andrea Graziani wins the Italy Ambassador Awards, first prize worldwide for the best influencers and bloggers who promote Italy on social networks, during the prestigious BTO-Buy Tourism Online, the annual reference event on digital tourism, innovation and training, dedicated in 2022 to Metatourism.
Italy, 5th Dec 2022 – Andrea Graziani, freelance photographer and videomaker, resident in Verona, active in the photographic field for 13 years, has specialized in digital communication for some years and has been chosen among the “Top Influencer” finalists (content creator with over 400,000 followers) in the categories Travel and Fashion, winning the first prize in the Fashion category.
The award is an acknowledgment to enhance the ability of those who, with great commitment, want to make Italy’s many qualities better known to both foreigners and Italians. Andrea Graziani, whose Instagram profile @graziani_andrea is followed by over 900,000 people, participated in the contest with a post dedicated to the sustainability of the Travel and Fashion sectors, highlighting their qualities.
Five categories were examined: Travel, Food&Wine, Fashion, Beauty&Spa and Luxury Lifestyle. Each category was in turn divided into 5 groups of followers: Micro, Junior, Expert, Advanced Blogger and Top Influencer.
“Communication in the digital world, like marketing, requires knowledge of new technologies, perseverance and continuous study,” says Andrea Graziani. “I have always focused, in addition to the quality of my photography and my videos, also on the communicative effectiveness they have. I’ve never focused on the number of followers because I believe that the community should be created and taken care of over time: my trump card is trying to inspire people through my channels. The next step will be Tik Tok, the platform of the moment which, thanks to its algorithm, can give a lot of visibility.”.
Italy Ambassador Awards is an initiative in collaboration with Toscana Promozione Turistica, under the patronage of Enit (National Tourism Agency) and POT (Polish National Tourist Board).
Today Andrea has joined the Top Influencers of Italy and will be one of the protagonists of the next blog tours in Tuscany and Poland, in collaboration with the Italy Ambassador Awards.
Godmother of the event Maria Grazia Cucinotta. Founder of the award Svetlana Trushnikova. President of the jury Giorgio Palmucci, vice president Francesco Tapinassi.
