VisitBritain Recognizes Perceptive Travel

Frequent Perceptive Travel webzine contributor Amy Rosen scored a first prize in VisitBritain’s annual travel journalism awards. Her story on lessons learned in the Wales countryside came out on top in the online category, beating out lots of better-funded competitors.

We’re in good company too. The other category winners were Anthony Bourdain from the Travel Channel, Bruce Schoenfield from Travel + Leisure, and Jane Wooldridge from the Miami Herald. Our own Bruce Northam was on hand at the ceremony to be the face of Perceptive Travel as he was the grand prize winner last year.

We win quite a few “best travel writing” awards, but Amy Rosen is like award flypaper—everything seems to stick to her. (Her How to Make an Igloo at 40 Below story won so many prizes last year we stopped counting.) So while I’m at it, congratulations to her also for scoring a First Place and three Merit shout-outs in the recent NATJA Awards—two of those for Perceptive Travel features. Nice!

She’ll have a new Norway piece up in the May issue, but meanwhile you can also check out Bloodvein: Redemption on the River in Manitoba or Extreme Eating in Morocco.
