National Geographic Traveller (UK) has once again won the Best Consumer Holiday Magazine category at the British Travel Awards gala dinner held at Battersea Evolution, London.
Pat Riddell, editor, said: “Winning this award last year was a fantastic achievement, but to win it again in 2015 is even better, especially as there’s been no let up in the levels of competition. It’s been another very busy year for the magazine, so it’s really satisfying to know that we’re doing something right.”
Anthony Leyens, chief executive of APL Media, the publishers of National Geographic Traveller, said: “Thank you to all those who voted and congratulations to our hardworking and dedicated team of professionals who I’m enormously proud of.
“We’re so delighted to receive this award because it recognises the quality of the content we’ve been producing across all media platforms — and what makes it even more special is that, with a record number of UK travellers voting this year, we’ve won this based on a consumer vote.”
British Travel Awards’ chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “More than a quarter of a million consumers voted this year to determine the winners of the 2015 British Travel Awards – it’s the largest awards programme in the UK and to win is a clear statement that companies are providing excellence in travel to the discerning consumer. The travelling public regard the British Travel Awards winners logo as the benchmark for excellence when it comes to finding out who are the best travel companies and National Geographic Traveller is to be congratulated on their achievement.”
The award further cements its position as a leading title in the consumer travel market. The 180-page magazine celebrates compelling storytelling featuring award-winning writers, you-are-there-photography and inspiring narratives.
