Thought the ship had sailed to enter The Travel Awards 2019? Well, boy have we got some luck-filled news for you!
Late entries are being accepted to this year’s awards, but only until 5pm (AEST) on Friday 6 September, meaning you’ll have to hop to it in order for your submission/s to count. Get cracking on your submission now HERE!
Now, those who entered on time might think it’s a tad unfair to keep the gates open a bit longer, but just remember that you don’t have to pay $50 extra for tardiness!
Organised by The Nibbler‘s sister publication, Travel Weekly, in association with media partner Better Homes and Gardens and principal partner Crystal, The Travel Awards are designed to celebrate wholesalers, destinations, airlines, tourism boards, cruise lines, retailers and the myriad of other companies that make the travel industry so amazing.
Capitalising on the phenomenal reach of Better Homes and Gardens, these awards will also offer travel brands the chance of winning an incredible advertising package worth $75,000 from which to market themselves.
Judged by more than 50 of Australia’s most experienced travel industry alumni and experts from the marketing sector, 37 categories cover the full gamut of the travel industry.
There are also some new and updated categories this year, so be sure to review the criteria document closely before submitting your entry/entries.
And, of course, the highly coveted Grand Prix Award will shine a light on one company making the biggest, most impressive splash in the industry.
Travel Weekly has provided a few handy tips on impressing the judges, which you can check out here.
