Creative Tourism Awards – Presentation and application

Creative Tourism Awards

Created by
the Creative Tourism Network®,
the Creative Tourism Awards
aim to reward companies,

projects and destinations worldwide that foster
this new generation of tourism,
characterized by the active participation of the tourists
in artistic and creative activities.

Internationally recognized for its action in favor of a more innovative and sustainable tourism, the Creative Tourism Network® works with a panel of prestigious experts headed by Professor Greg Richards, co-inventor of the creative tourism concept, in order to determine and guarantee the respect of the Best Practices of the Creative Tourism.

Thus, the international jury of the Creative Tourism Awards selects every year five winners among hundreds of initiatives and destinations that highlight for their commitment to this emerging sector.

Are particularly appreciated the authenticity and creativity of the proposals, as well as the promoters’ interest in involving locals and tourists in the co-creation of their experiences.

Besides the recognition, the winners are offered tools and services in terms of promotion.

The categories are:
