The 2019 awards will see new formats and a new event, supported by Philippine Airlines, which has been flying nonstop between Auckland and Manila since December 2017. The Awards and event will be known as the “Philippine Airlines-Travcom Travel Media Awards”.

The major prizes - for the Travel Writer of the Year and Travel Photographer of the Year – will include return Premium Economy Class tickets for two flying Philippine Airlines from Auckland to the Philippines.

New Zealand Area Manager for Philippine Airlines, Israel Fontanilla, is excited to announce the sponsorship. 
“Philippine Airlines is thrilled to be able to support such a respected institution as the Travcom Awards. Travel communicators play such a crucial role in helping airlines, destinations and tourism operators to inspire travel.

“Philippine Airlines is committed to growing its presence in New Zealand and we see this relationship as a great way to make Kiwis aware of our services. The Philippines is a new and largely unknown destination to many New Zealanders and we see the relationship with Travcom as a great way to build awareness of both the destination and Philippine Airlines.”

Travcom has begun planning for the awards event to take place in Auckland on October 31st, so put a note in your diaries.

We'll be announcing awards categories and entry requirements soon.

Entrants must be current Travcom members to be eligible to enter. Join Travcom here
