The international films competed in 13 different categories and many countries have been awarded such as Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, Dominica, Dubai, Egypt, Germany, Hungary, India, Latvia, Malaysia, Peru, Poland, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and UK.
The Diamond Award, the silk ribbon of excellence for tourism films, this year has been awarded to Dubai for the film “Ali’s Film”. 1st prices went to Malaysia (Malaysia Truly Asia – The Essence of Malaysia), to UK (The Lake), to Egypt (Incentives made by where it all begins), Germany (SIXT Imagefilm 2014) and India (The Great Backwaters, Kerala) amongst others.

This year for the first time the Master Award for Tolerance and Diversity has been awarded. The South African born singer Prince Damien got this important prize for his Music Clip “Easy Breezy”. The prize for Tolerance and Diversity will be awarded regularly in the future to encourage the tourism industry to campaign in their promotion films for tolerance and diversity, regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation, according to the will of festival president Wolfgang Huschert.
Mr. Huschert emphasizes that the high quality of participating films made it quiet hard to the jury to come to a decision. Sometimes, between a 1st and a 3rd prize, only a few points made the difference.
The International Film and Media Competition “The Golden City Gate” is planning to include in future new categories such as App’s and special awards for social internet communities such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.
