What the NomadMania Awards are about

The NomadMania Travel Awards are being launched in 2021 and will become an annual event to celebrate achievements in travel. In 2021, the award ceremony will be a virtual event taking place on November 28, 2021 at 15.30 GMT. Further instructions will be provided in due course. Pre-registration will help us keep in touch with you about the event.

Ten awards will be given: five of these will be selected internally by the NomadMania Team, while the remaining five will be selected through initial proposals by the public (whether NomadMania members or not) which will then become 5 nominations per award category and will be voted on exclusively by NomadMania Members. To be eligible for voting in the final round, voters must have registered with NomadMania until October 24, 2021 and must have 35 or more NomadMania regions marked as visited on October 24, 2021.
