I tap my hat to all the contestants who have shown such great passion and energy to introduce what's special about their neighborhood. I wish they all could be my host next time I'm traveling. The quality of the productions was so much higher than expected and the personal narrative of all the stories made this such a special project.

There will be more people feel inspired to travel to those places and find the magic that the locals see :)

#1 Prize of €8,000 for THE LEAGUE DISTRICT

I joined this contest for 2 reasons: a) I have used Airbnb for the first time one month before the contest and I was amazed of this site, it worked great for me. And b) I found this a great way to show a part of my city, where I always have lived in, and one of my favorites in the world. Even if you don´t like football, I think you can not miss this part of the city, Madrid Rio.

This is an amazing production that brings to life the special atmosphere of the neighborhood. Made me want to go there immediately.

#2 Prize of €6,000 for Arthur Avenue

We were chatting about how amazing our Arthur Avenue neighborhood was, and I remembered seeing a contest for Airbnb. We're both Italian and love to have a little slice of home, we thought we needed to share with the world how special this little Italy is. When we found out we won we jumped up and down and decided to use the money for a trip to the real Italy. We're so excited and grateful. 

I very much enjoyed the deep insight into the neighborhood that has a lot to offer. Narrated in an engaging way, great production!

#3 Prize of €4,000 for Montmartre's Cemetery

This video have been filmed some weeks before the AirBnB contest was even published in Eyeka. I shot this project together with another director, Damien Rayuela, with whom I had a project to make authentic videos about Paris. Damien had a job contract in another country, and we stopped the project. But when I saw the contest on Eyeka, I found our video was exactly what the brief was asking for. This  competition had a huge amount of beautiful videos. And I am still impressed on how our video could stand out among so many others. Maybe our quality was to find an unknown place in the middle of the so-touristic Paris. Congratulations for all the other amazing video makers who competed in this great contest!

This is so beautiful and personal - I will find this place next time I'm in Paris.

#4 Prize of €2,000 for La rue Sainte-Marthe

This is the first Eyeka contest we entered. A friend of mine talk about the platform, and the first contest I saw was Airbnb. At first, I imagined something very complicated, technically challenging. But the rain and my team buddy Thibaud wasn't keen on it, saying it would be too difficult to pull of. When the rain stopped, we walked in the streets and imagined this story. Everything worked out kind of magically, doors opening, and the sun coming back. We edited it and uploaded the same day. What a great surprise ! We are really happy and we love this street even more now !

Such a fun little story and creative execution! Made me smile.
