As a BBC Travel contributor, we have been nominated for a Webby Award in the Video Series & Channels, the Travel & Lifestyle category! I’m happy and proud to share this honor with the rest of the team and contributors at BBC Travel.
This arrived in my inbox from BBC Travel today, “This nomination isn’t our nomination, it’s a nomination for every single freelance videographer, editor and writer and the hours you put in to your videos for us. It’s an acknowledgement of the extra mile you go to for us, and the consistent quality of your journalistic eye and expertise in your field. It’s a nomination for the untold stories you’ve uncovered, the voices that wouldn’t otherwise be heard, and the amazing dinner party stories you’ve provided every single one of our viewers. It’s a nomination for those beautiful ‘oh wow, look at that!’ moments. So thank you, so much, this wouldn’t have been possible without you.
Over the past year we’ve covered 100 destinations in 77 countries, from Antarctica to India, telling historical, foodie, crafty, beautiful stories, and that barely scratches the surface. And we want to keep going and continue to inspire travellers to fall in love with the world – every day.
We need your help though. To win (and we’re up against some pretty serious competition) we need votes. It only takes two minutes, and it means a huge amount to us. Just follow the link here, and make sure to share it with your friends, family and colleagues, as every single vote counts.”
