The Scubaverse team are delighted to announce that they have been nominated for two awards at the 2018 Caribbean Travel Media Awards!
The Caribbean Tourism Organization has announced the shortlist of three finalists in each of the ten categories in the 2018 Caribbean Travel Media Awards. More than 130 entries across ten categories were reviewed by a panel of judges, representing the media and travel industry, via a strict criteria and points system.
Underwater Photography Editor, Nick Robertson-Brown, has made the short-list of just three finalists in the Best Piece of Photojournalism category for his feature on scuba diving in Barbados featured in the Scubaverse Annual. Caroline Robertson-Brown, Deputy Editor, has been shortlisted in the final three for Best Social Media Campaign for her series of blogs written whilst on assignment in The Bahamas which featured on the www.scubaverse.com website.
Carol Hay, the CTO’s director of marketing for UK and Europe, said: “Congratulations go to all the nominees who made it to the shortlist. The standard of submissions was very competitive this year which included a record number of impressive blog posts and social media campaigns. This clearly reflects the huge part that social media now plays in helping to raise awareness and tell the great stories of the Caribbean. I was also pleased to note the huge variety of niche media also represented. We thank our Judges for taking the time to review the entries and make their decisions and look forward to welcoming them and the finalists to the Awards.”
The overall winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony on Monday 5 November to be held during the World Travel Market at The Fox@ ExCel located at the West Entrance of the Excel Centre in London.
