The Awards were created in recognition of the hugely influential role that today’s travel media plays in the holiday and business travel decision-making process. Open to all travel writers, broadcasters and photographers, the Awards are a true barometer of the travel media sector.

2018 saw the Awards reach new highs, with over 700 entries from across the media sector, both big and small, including some of the most recognisable names in travel media. Over 320 travel industry and media professionals attended the Awards ceremony at the ME London Hotel to see the winners crowned.
