This awards competition, now in its 27th year, honours the best of the best in travel journalism, photography and destination marketing that cover all aspects of the travel industry.


Submissions for the competition are worldwide and reflect major publications, renowned journalists, and influential bloggers. “The winners are a microcosm of the talent, creativity and journalistic excellence that encapsulates our industry-leading members,” said Helen Hernandez, CEO, NATJA. “As our membership continues to grow so do the submissions of the accomplished pool of those who work in the travel industry—raising the competitiveness and prestige of the annual NATJA Awards.”

This is Adam Groffman’s second win from the NATJA awards, and follows a silver Lowell Thomas award last year from the Society of American Travel Writers, also for “best travel blog.”

“The inaugural awards dinner will feature the entrants whose work stood out amongst the hundreds of superb submissions competing for a NATJA Award,” said NATJA Advisory Board Chair Kathryn Farrington. “The NATJA board, staff and members would like to thank the judges for their time and expertise in evaluating this year’s submissions and identifying the best of the best from each category.”
