Skift Take

Every day, creative minds around the world are shaping the future of the travel industry. If you're one of those innovators - and are looking for an opportunity to showcase your work on a global scale - the Skift IDEA Awards might just be the platform for you.

Now in its sixth year, the Skift IDEA Awards has become the travel industry’s most coveted achievement for excellence in design, creativity, and innovation – celebrating over 80 winners since its inception in 2019. 

With 25 categories split across five distinct criteria groups – Change Makers, Creative Thinkers, Industry Innovators, Problem Solvers and Travel Technology – the 2024 program has been designed to provide an opportunity to celebrate the people, teams, organizations and ideas that are redefining the future of travel. 

So, you have an initiative to share, and you know that entering the Skift IDEA Awards is your chance to showcase your vision and boost your brand’s exposure, but where do you begin? Here’s a concise guide to get you started:

  1. Choose your category: Browse 2024 categories here and select the one that best aligns with your project. From user-centric apps to sustainable initiatives or groundbreaking marketing campaigns, there’s a category for every type of innovation.
  1. Create your account: Head to our Award Platform, create your account and familiarize yourself with the way the platform works. The process is very intuitive, with the submission form being split into five distinct sections.
  1. Review the Guidelines: Thoroughly read any guidelines and requirements outlined within the form so that your entry meets all relevant category criteria. Pay close attention to deadlines, formatting, and any specific instructions for each category. You can also download a blank PDF entry for your ease of reference.
  1. Prepare your submission: This is your time to shine, so clearly articulate your concept, its benefits, and any measurable results or success stories. There is also the opportunity to provide visuals, data and testimonials to bolster your case and make a lasting impression on the judges.
  1. Proof, proof, proof: Double-check all of the details and attachments included in your submission are accurate to avoid any last-minute changes, as some of the information provided may be used in marketing materials (should your submission successfully move through the process).
  1. Submit Your Entry: Whether your submission is complete or you’d like to come back to finalize it at a later date, you can submit your entry to make the most of the early submission price with the peace of mind that you can make edits up until the final entry deadline on June 13, 2024.

By entering the Skift IDEA Awards, you’re not just vying for recognition; you’re joining a like-minded community of individuals and organizations who are shaping the future of travel. Whether you walk away with a win or not, this experience will be invaluable.
