What are the WOW moments in your life?

One of the WOW moments in Kristy Rowe’s life was when she captured her nephew’s reaction to seeing Santa.

The utter joy on the young child’s face brought a tear to my eye when I watched it, and brought Rowe a “money-can’t-buy” trip on the inaugural voyage on the world’s newest superliner Quantum of the Seas which will be launched in November. 

Rowe was announced the winner yesterday at the first ever Instagram Film Festival, created by Royal Caribbean to celebrate the WOW moments on their cruise liners.

The campaign invited budding filmmakers to capture 15 seconds of a WOW moment and upload it to Instagram via hashtag #InstaFilmFest

“When choosing the finalists, as well as the camera skills, the videos had to mean something to me and connect with the audience,” Pauly Vella, InstaFilmFest judge, said.

“The winner was the standout for me – seeing the look on the little boy’s face when he saw Santa Claus really captured that “WOW” moment best. It put a huge smile on my face!”

The final ten entries were shown on board Voyager of the Seas yesterday afternoon, following a spectacular ice skating show.

The final ten entries short-listed included videos of a crocodile at feeding time, one excited dog’s visit to the beach, a playful seal, spectacular Australian night sky, a dramatic lightning show, a day of contrast in Tasmania, jewel coloured Sydney harbour captured on a ferry ride, a wave “performance” and one surprising fish. 

Check out the winning entry and top ten finalists below.
