Perceptive Travel’s Sheila Scarborough Wins SXSW Social Media Award

Looks like it’s a winning season for the Perceptive Travel writers.

First there was Tim Leffel with his First Prize  NATJA  Award in the category of Travel Writing on the Internet for a Perceptive Travel story  Unbalanced in the Sinking City.

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.

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.
