FINAL CALL: The Travel Awards entry deadline is TODAY!

It’s our third and final warning for entries to The Travel Awards 2019. And, just to be clear, you have until 5pm (AEST) today to submit!

You read right, folks. Travel Weekly is still accepting late entries 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 entry 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 Travel Weekly, part of The Misfits Media Company, 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.

We also have 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.

We’ve provided a few handy tips on impressing the judges, which you can check out here.

If you’re seeking further inspiration, check out our three reasons why you should enter The Travel Awards, as well as interviews with a couple of last year’s winners here and here.

This year, the Travel Awards will be held on Friday 29 November at The Venue Alexandria in Sydney, marking the perfect time to celebrate a year of hard work and to recharge your batteries for another year ahead.
