PRLog - Jul. 31, 2010 - PARKER, Colo. -- Worldnomads.com has announced that the Northern Territory team, Americans Willie Concepción and Andrew Adams, are the winners of Van-Tastic Adventures. Willie and Andrew were one of seven teams who drove Geoff, the Van-Tastic van, through a total of 33,000 kilometers of Australia over the past year. Willie and Andrew win the grand prize of $10,000 and two return air tickets with Virgin Blue, anywhere on its Australian network.

The contest attracted nearly 100,000 views to the 100 videos that the teams created and posted during their road trip. At the end of the competition, the travelling public was invited to vote for their favourite team video, with the chance of winning an ultimate road trip adventure pack.

The winner of the voter competition is Naomi Edmondson. The prize pack included an ipod Touch; iphone; MacBook Pro and Canon video camera.

The contest consisted of seven teams of adventure travellers from across the globe, each taking on one Australian state in the ultimate, all-expenses paid, Aussie road trip. Each team was armed with the keys to the brilliantly-coloured and kitted out Van-Tastic van, provided by Travellers Auto Barn, and charged with tackling – and recording on video and blogs – the wild Australian terrain and a host of adventure activities over six weeks.
From swimming with dolphins to jumping out of planes; abseiling to wine-tasting; surfing to horseriding; bungee jumping to caving, the teams filmed it all.
“It's affirming, really, which is what's most valuable to me. Willie and I both chose to study arts in college, knowing full well how low the rate of success is in such fields. So to earn such an amazing opportunity in the first place, and then to know that our work touched people in such a way and was actually entertaining -- it means a lot. It lets us know that we didn't make a mistake, and that we were right to study what we love.” – Andrew Adams
