Tourism Malaysia and Malaysia’s Ministry of Tourism and Culture are pleased to announce the call for nominations for the Malaysia Tourism Awards 2014/2015.
First introduced in 1987, the prestigious bi-annual Awards are the highest accolade for the organisations and individuals who have contributed to the success of Malaysia’s tourism industry. In recent years they expanded from a primarily tourist-and-travel centric recognition program into one that encompasses all service industries, recognizing and honouring members of both the local and international tourism industries for outstanding and innovative products and services.
This year’s Awards program now has 14 categories and 50 subcategories for nominations, including two new categories – Best Travel Documentary on Malaysia and Best Online Promotion of Malaysia.
In addition, the Best Foreign Tour Operator category has been expanded from 10 to 18 subcategories, while the Best Tourism Publication category is no longer restricted only to tourism magazines and now allows submissions from other local and international publications, such as coffee table books and guidebooks that have provided good editorial coverage for Malaysia.
Tourism Malaysia warmly invites all local and international travel trade and media to t participate in the Awards and submit their nomination forms soon. Nomination form can be downloaded at http://corporate.tourism.gov.my/downloads/MTAFORM2015.pdf
The closing date for nominations is 30 June 2015.
