Travel Media Awards 2020 winners

The winners of the Travel Media Awards 2020 were announced at an online event on 25 January, attended virtually by representatives of the UK’s top travel media. The event saw 22 publications, broadcasters, journalists and photographers awarded a prestigious trophy, including adventurer, author and photographer Levison Wood, who was presented with the Special Contribution Award.

The Travel Media Awards were created in recognition of the hugely influential role that today’s travel media play. Submissions 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 consumer travel magazines (both national and regional) to travel trade titles and guide books.
