Airport supports travel media awards

Travel media award winner

The travel media celebrated excellence within their ranks last month at the Cathay Pacific Travel Media Awards.

Organised by Travcom (New Zealand Travel Communicators), the awards celebrated their 20th anniversary this year, handing out awards for writing and photography. Auckland Airport sponsored two of those awards.

The first, for best magazine travel story, went to Venetia Sherson for her story entitled Autumn in Tuscany, published in NZ Life & Leisure magazine’s January/February 2012 issue.

On the photography side of things, Joshua Windsor was recognised for his stunning image of a rock climber scaling the Babylon Crag in Fiordland that was published in NZ Geographic magazine in November last year. He took home the Auckland Airport award for the best travel image taken in New Zealand.

The two winners each take home a $2000 cash prize.
