TRAVELLERS are being invited to nominate their favourite Australian travel website for the 3rd annual TRAVELtech Amadeus Web Awards.
The top prize is Website of the Year while the awards also recognize Australia’s Top Ten Websites.
Past winners of Website of the Year include HotelsCombined.com (2010) and LonelyPlanet.com (2009).
Martin Kelly, Director of the annual TRAVELtech conference says the awards are open to any travel website developed and managed in Australia.
“The size of the company behind the website is not an issue but innovation, design, usability and speed are,” Mr Kelly said.
Winners will be selected from a shortlist of the top 25 sites across all travel categories by an independent judging panel who take consumer voting into account.
Nominations are open until next Friday, August 5, and full details are available at the travel industry website TravelTrends.biz.
Entering the TRAVELtech Amadeus Web Awards is easy. Just send the website URL through to ‘martin dot kelly at traveltrends dot biz’.
Websites will also be sourced from the Top 100 ranked travel websites according to Experian Hitwise combined with suggestions from readers of TravelTrends.biz.
Candidates will then be narrowed to the Top 25 website, which will be posted on TravelTrends.biz Monday, 8 August, and the public invited to vote for the next 10 days.
These results will be forwarded to the judging panel and the winners announced at TRAVELtech in Sydney on August 29.
