Welcome to the Second Annual Travel Summary Awards. These awards have been created to recognize the outstanding contributions made by our favorite points and travel bloggers, as voted on by the readers themselves.
Last year’s awards were surprisingly fun for me and popular to readers, and people at FTU and the Chicago Seminars have mentioned it to me saying they’re interested in seeing another one. I can honestly say that this one is back by popular demand! If you missed it last year, check out the results in this post.
I learned a lot last year about how I should run these awards. I allowed write-in voting in the “other” option of each category, something I will not be doing this time. People also asked me to add blogs to certain categories – I will not be doing that either. I’ve listened to suggestions all year and incorporated some, but this time all nominees and categories have been picked completely by me.
There are still no prizes for the winners…just bragging rights. Voting will commence as soon as this post goes live and voting ends at 11:59PM PST on 1/15/14. Results will be analyzed and announced at the end of January, and the complete voting results will be made public thereafter just as it was last year.
So without further ado, here are 2013’s Award Categories and Nominees!
*You are only allowed one vote. If you’ve already voted, the poll may no longer show up in your browser.*
