Welcome to the

Travel Media Awards 2016 in association with Qatar

Celebrating excellence in travel media, journalism, broadcasting and photography

The Travel Media Awards 2016, in association with Qatar, took place on 27 October 2016 at ME London Hotel. Over 250 people were present to see the cream of the travel media crop honoured with an Award, including representatives of some of the UK’s leading travel media and industry organisations.

Submissions to the 2016 Awards were judged by some of the UK’s most influential travel industry figures alongside leading travel writers and editors. Categories covered a wide range of disciplines and media, from national newspaper travel sections and consumer travel magazines to travel trade titles, as well as travel bloggers and guide books.

The Awards were created in recognition of the hugely influential role that today’s travel media play in the holiday or business travel decision-making process. Open to all travel writers, broadcasters and photographers, the Awards are importantly not aligned to any Association or Guild, resulting in no barriers to entry. As such the Travel Media Awards are a true barometer of the travel media sector.
