Happy Holidays from Tripfilms! Tripfilms was created as a place for everyone to share their travel videos from all over the world, and as the year comes to a close it’s a good time for us to look back and reflect on the awe-inspiring places and adventures we have experienced through the incredible videos shared by the Tripfilms community.
How many videos were uploaded?
1,280 videos uploaded so far in 2015, bringing total Tripfilms video library to 21,720 videos. Of those videos, 818 were HD editor’s picks. That’s a lot of high quality travel videos. Kudos to everyone who uploaded!
Where did our TripVloggers travel this year?
The TripVlogger program is a way for us to reward top Tripfilms contributors with paid video assignments. If you are uploading editor’s pick quality travel videos to Tripfilms, you could be eligible for a TripVlogger assignment! Click here to learn more about the TripVlogger program and apply.
This year, Tripfilms TripVloggers traveled to the Grand Canyon, Ho Chi Minh City, Phnom Penh, Bangkok, Toronto, Muskoka, Niagara Falls, San Diego, Long Beach, Las Vegas, Smugglers’ Notch, Laos, China, Sydney, Madrid, Cleveland, Cuba, Abu Dhabi, Alaska, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Dallas, Iceland, Italy, Mexico, Atlantic City, Malta, Cebu City, Hanoi, Phuket, Porto, Lisbon, Indonesia. And the videos they made were amazing!

Did we host the Trippy Awards this year?

How many filmmakers were profiled on the blog?
We interviewed 27 filmmakers for the Twelve Travel Questions series this year. We also published the collected responses of 50 of these expert travelers for our Best of Tripfilms Twelve Travel Questions series. Find the links here.
How did we work with Tripfilms partners this year?
We are always excited about partnerships that allow us to share Tripfilms travel videos with audiences beyond Tripfilms.com. Our goal with these partnerships is to increase awareness of travel video and Tripfilms filmmakers in the travel community as well as among general audiences.
This year we continued to distribute top Tripfilms videos on MSN, USA Today, and Yahoo. In 2015 we also created new Tripfilms channels on Frequency, Vessel, and Amazon. You can read more about these partnerships here on the blog:
- Tripfilms Videos Featured on MSN Travel
- Tripfilms Videos Now on Frequency.com
- Tripfilms TripVlogger Videos Now on Vessel
- Why Upload Videos to Tripfilms?
Last year, our wish list for partnerships included better attribution for filmmakers and better stats reporting from them on view counts. We now have attribution for filmmakers on all partner channels and our partners now provide metrics either through a dashboard or upon request. Remember that you still own and retain all rights to your videos when you upload to Tripfilms.com and you can continue to upload your videos anywhere else you choose. We hope that giving Tripfilms filmmakers the chance to get their videos distributed on these channels can help their videos reach even more people around the world and inspire others to travel.
How many times were we inspired by this beautiful world we live in that you shared with us through your travel videos?
We want to offer a sincere and heartfelt thank you to everyone in the Tripfilms community—from all of the filmmakers to anyone who has ever watched a travel video on Tripfilms—thank you for sharing your world. We wish you very happy holidays and a happy new year! May your new year be full of new destinations, new friends, and even more travel adventures.
