The winning works have also displayed a strong storytelling logic, in-depth plots and innovative visual expressions in terms of video editing and audio applications.

Stuart Wiggin from the United Kingdom was among the awardees. He uses his unique British sense of humor to tell stories of China through cultural, tourism, science, sports and life-themed videos.

Wiggin says he aims to present the most authentic and down-to-earth stories of Beijing and China to his viewers.

Liljana Arsovska, a Sinologist and translator from Mexico, also shared her deep connections with Beijing at the awards ceremony.

"Beijing can be considered the capital of my life," Arsovska says.

"I spent the most wonderful years of my education here and even met my beloved at Badaling (Great Wall)."

Now, due to her work in Chinese studies and translation, she often has the opportunity to return to Beijing.

"It feels like coming home, with a sense of familiarity," she says.

Ahmadzai believes there are more than 100 reasons to love the Chinese capital city.

"I did the video to help more international people to better understand how supportive Beijing can be and how the city offers a great number of opportunities," he says, adding that the city provides a very open, inclusive and international environment for business and innovation.
