"We have worked with many great brands, from Coca-Cola to Shazam, but this contest is our first with an iconic brand of the sharing economy. We are proud to connect our global community of filmmakers with Airbnb, allowing them to create fresh and authentic video content about the places they call home all over the globe, and I am looking forward to being amazed again by the diversity and the talent of our community."
