Travel Media Awards 2019 winners

TRAVEL MEDIA AWARDS

THE CHALLENGE

With no other independent media awards existing within the travel and tourism sector, APL Media and Travega wanted to fill the gap and celebrate the very best in travel media, journalism, broadcasting and photography.

TMA 2019

OUR SOLUTION

As a joint venture agreement with Travega, APL Media launched the Travel Media Awards to recognise and promote excellence in travel media.

Open to all travel writers, broadcasters and photographers, the awards are not aligned to any association or guild — meaning no barriers to entry. Submissions are judged by some of the UK’s most influential figures from the travel media, as well as the travel industry at large.

The 20 award categories cover a wide range of disciplines and media, including trade and consumer, print and online, and photography and broadcasting.

THE RESULTS

After four successful years, the Travel Media Awards returned in 2019 with a ceremony held on 21 October at the Landmark London Hotel.

With more than 300 guests attending and a staggering 907 entries across 20 award categories, the awards continue to grow and will return again in 2020.
