Looks like it’s a winning season for the Perceptive Travel writers.
He has since won a Silver in the Destinations category of the annual Solas Awards sponsored by Travelers’ Tales Publishing for the same story as well as a Bronze Solas Award in the “Doing Good or the Kindness of Strangers” category for a story called The Collision (which was also awarded a second prize in Transitions Abroad’s annual narrative travel writing contest). Talk about award winning!
Then there was Alison Stein Wellner with her The Heat Seeker story (originally published on World Hum) being published in the Traveler’s Tales Best Women’s Travel Writing 2010 anthology due out this month.
And now there is Sheila Scarborough with her newly won Texas Social Media Award at the recent South by Southwest Interactive (SXSWi) tech conference in Austin.
Given Sheila’s enthusiasm and energy in regards learning and teaching others, especially the tourism industry, about social media, this award is well deserved. For Sheila’s take on social media, head on over to Sheila’s Guide to the Good Stuff and Tourism Currents.
Way to go Sheila. Hope you can hear the long distance clapping.
