Society of American Travel Writers Foundation
Annual Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition
We have compiled lists of past winners to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition in 2014-15.
Our first awards were presented in 1985 for work published in 1984. For the first two decades, our contest ran on the calendar year, for work from January 1 through December 31. In 2001, the contest was changed to span spring to spring, overlapping years. Thus, clicking the year 2002 below brings up winners for work done in 2001-02. The following years are similar time spans.
Click on each year to see winners.
Use the Search field on this page, below the list of years, to find names of winning publications and journalists. This will bring up a list of years in which the name appears. Then use your Brower’s search function to find the name on that specific page/list.
