White Horse Inn Movie Contest: and the Winner is...

The White Horse Inn Oscar Goes To: the Winning Entries of the Movie Contest

Numerous fantastic short movies have been entered in the White Horse Inn Movie Contest. A high calibre jury has chosen the winners from all nominated entries: the 1st Prize, a week long holiday at the White Horse Inn, goes to Rainer Engel.

At the end of the day, comedy will do the trick: a tongue-in-cheek parody of a well-known Austrian advertising spot was the jury's favourite - Rainer Engel's entry wins the White Horse Inn Movie Contest from the romantic lakefront hotel in Austria. The winners of the second and third place prizes can also look forward to holidays at the famous Austrian hotel.

The White Horse Inn Winner: "Humour goes a long way"

With his humorous video, winner Rainer Engel summarises the holiday feeling at the White Horse Inn: two friends, who meet again after a long time, compare the services included in their holiday deals, with the clear winner being the White Horse Inn at Lake Wolfgang.

The jury's decision for the winning entry has been summarised as follows: "at the end of the day it was all about the laughs. The White Horse Inn is traditionally well-known for not taking itself too seriously - so the tongue-in-cheekiness from Rainer Engels winning entry is simply perfect." So the unison verdict of the jury surrounding the White Horse Inn Host, Oliver Trutmann-Peter.

The six-strong jury consisted of:

  • Helga Benatzky - the niece of the famous White Horse Inn Operetta composer, Ralph Benatzky.
  • Johannes Peinsteiner, Mayor of St. Wolfgang
  • Britta Bayer, actress and ensemble member of the Salzburg State Theatre.
  • Michael Mrazek - Representing the Advertising & Marketing industries at the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber for Salzburg.
  • Verena Oerley, Medienwerkstatt, Producer of the White Horse Inn video: "Days Like These"
  • Fabian Kametz, Medienwerkstatt
