Best Youth Travel Blogger

About the award

The Best Youth Travel Blogger is a new category that recognises the power of travel blogs as a source of inspiration for young travellers in the planning stages of their trip and while on the road. It also recognises the fast-changing social media environment that youth travel companies and destinations can benefit from.


Open to all blogs with a focus on youth, student and educational travel experiences.


We are looking for a shining example of a text-based travel blog that inspires young people to travel, work or volunteer abroad, study or learn a language.


Entrants are judged on their ability to inspire and inform young travellers. The judges will look at:

  • Popularity of the blog 
  • Quality of the content 
  • Frequency of publication 
  • Quality of visuals 
  • Integration with other types of social media 
  • Number of followers and visits.

Please note:

  • The blog should be publicly accessible for at least six months
  • The blog should be written by an individual travel blogger
  • The blog must be written in English
  • The blogger must write for a youth traveller (18 – 35) readership.
