"We're honored to win this award," said Wu Xiangyang, CEO of Wuyuan Rural Culture Development Co., Ltd. "It is a validation of all of the hard work that we have done to protect and enhance the beauty of Huangling village. We hope that this recognition will make more people aware of this village and what we have that can offer film production teams and visitors."

Huangling's team used VR technology to display the village's landscape and unique shaiqiu, the stunning view of bamboo baskets filling with colorful produce sun-dried over roofs and in racks against the quaint Hui-style houses dotted across the mountains.

Known as China's most beautiful village, Huangling is committed to developing a production set that integrates natural scenery, history and cultural heritage. Huangling has received over 10 production teams including China's popular TV series Ode to Joy, and has joined hands with the Beijing Film Academy to establish a production base for its students and their affiliate, Youth Film Studio.

"'Focus on China' has helped promote Huangling as a destination to global visitors. We hope that the village's views, which are unmatched anywhere else, can help film and television producers find inspiration of China," said Wu.
