    posted by Manita Dosanjh | 0 Comments


    With less than two weeks to go until voting begins for the first ever Travel Story Awards 2013, the pressure is on for our judges to choose the strongest nominations. It’s just so difficult…

    The nominees for Best Travel Video were among the strongest of all the entries, and it was great to get a taste of all the awesome places you’ve seen. We asked you to show us “A video that tells a great story, whether it focusses on a destination, full trip or a particular travel theme” and you blew us away….

    Here’s who made it into the top 15 and why. And remember:

    - Voting for Best Travel Video will open on December 11th.

    - The top 15 nominees are below, and we’ll be announcing the final shortlist of five on the first day of voting.

    - The blogger with the most votes will be revealed in January, and will win a week’s free accommodation from Hostelworld.
