Google Night Walk in Marseille

Google’s Night Walk in Marseille experience has won the Grand Prix for Digital at the Epica Awards. Launched in April 2014, the digital experience showcases Google Maps and Google Search technology. The Google Story film at the heart of the campaign follows French woman Julie Muer as she explores the streets of Marseilles, documenting the places and people she discovers along the way, to create ‘Promenades Sonores’. The digital interactive experience, online at, invites people from around the world to join Julie on an interactive Streetview tour of the city at night. Users use Google Maps to experience one of Julie’s walks through the neighbourhoods of Marseille, taking in 360 degree panoramic views, read facts about the city from Google and watch live performances of musicians playing on the streets, and artists creating wall murals.
