That was the BEST OF AUSTRIA event.
On the 6th of september 2017 one of the most remarkable and unique events for Austria took place at the Wiener Stadthalle. “BEST OF AUSTRIA” took the stage to shoot the world premier Country Selfie, a 360° gigapixel photo with thousands of participants.
This Austrian record shoot was accompanied by an entertaining show event. The MC’s Alfons Haider and Alex Jokel led through an exciting evening, which was rounded off with interesting interviews, great live acts and an interactive Austrian Quizz.

At 18.00 the Wiener Stadthalle opened the doors. Shortly before that, thousands of motivated participants gathered to support the BEST OF AUSTRIA initiative on this evening and tried to creatively present themselves on the first digital business card of Austria.
Among other things, we were pleased about the presence of many well-known companies, dedicated NGOs and private individuals who helped to make Austria shine in the right light on the world map.
The Show must go on.
The main event this evening was the 360° gigapixel photo shoot. In order not to jeopardize the photos by vibrations that could be transmitted to the photo tower and create “wobbly pictures”, the shoot was accompanied by interesting interviews and an interactive Austria Quizz.
We asked BEST OF AUSTRIA supporters for interesting interviews on the stage, such as Minister of Justice & Vice Chancellor Wolfgang BRANDSTETTER, Maria SMODICS-NEUMANN, (Spokeswoman WKW), who participated as a replacement of the diseased President of the WK Vienna, Walter Ruck, Heinrich PROKOP (Puls4 “2 minutes 2 million” investor and general manager of Gutschermühle), Martin STEININGER (founder of March 15 and main sponsor of BEST OF AUSTRIA), Florian DUNGL (publisher of “Valid” magazine), Rainer WILL (CEO of the trade association) and Monica RINTERSBACHER (CEO of Leitbetriebe Austria).
The winners of the BEST MOMENTS OF AUSTRIA photo contest were also presented and star designer La Hong honored us with his creations in a short fashion show.
Before the shoot, great live acts like Valerie & Mario Berger put the mood in good spirits and after the shoot The Rats Are Back, Playing Savage and LEMO fired up the audience again.
VIP After-Show Party.
Even after the event there was no end for BEST OF AUSTRIA. At the After-Show Party interesting and well-known personalities found the opportunity to celebrate the successful photo shoot together with a tired but happy BEST OF AUSTRIA team.
