Guides Awards Category

The awards for best travel guide-related blog were awards that weren't given out easily, thanks to the quality and number of guide blogs out there on the internet.

The blogs themselves were chosen by a dedicated team of travel experts that were enlisted to find as many of the best guide blogs that they could. This initial list was then heavily analysed in terms of content, media, writing style, topic choices and a number of other strict criteria that when combined, ideally form a great blog.

The award itself is to be considered a badge of pride in that it indicates that a particular blog fulfils all of our criteria and even exceeds our expectations in some areas, thus making it a brilliant blog that is worthy of an award, the purpose of which is to show to the rest of the internet that there are valuable sources of information to be had out there, especially in the realm of travel and we wish to highlight this fact.

The travel guide blogs listed below have all been deemed to be at the very top of their class in terms of delivering consistent and reliable information. Not only is each blogger able to attract in a wide variety of interested readers, but they can also keep their attention and have them returning time and time again back to their blog, purely because they are interested in the content being generated on the website. The judges looked for wealth of information in particular, as these guides are meant to be helpful/informative in some way, after all, but they also looked for the significance of accompanying media. Points were awarded to masterful use of picture references, as well as any videos and maps that highlighted a particular point or were otherwise used to increase the blog's overall aesthetic quality.
