The Association of Taiwan Tour Souvenir (台灣觀光特產協會) last month launched the selection process for 2012 Taiwan Best 100 tour souvenirs to benefit domestic tourism and to promote local products to the world.
Each souvenir in the exhibition has to showcase local tourism or give an impression of something unique that is produced in the area. There will be 100 souvenirs on show from different categories, all selected by combining scores from online voting and nine experts through five stages of judging.
The souvenir that received the highest votes online will be given the people's choice award and NT$20,000. Souvenirs that have the top three scores from online voting and experts will be awarded runner-up prizes of between NT$100,000 and NT$30,000.
The selections and judging process have been completed and the results will be announced at the 2012 Taiwan Best 100 tour souvenirs show. Websites, magazines and an exhibition hall will be created for the long-term promotion of the chosen items.
