Awards

I strive to produce high quality work. A compliment or positive feedback is always welcome and, of course, it’s always great to receive commendations and awards.

I’m pleased to say that I’m now one of those people who can be described as an award-winning travel writer or an award-winning journalist.

Stories published on Go Eat Do played a contributory role in me being named Journalist of the Year at the Holland Press Awards of 2015 and 2016.

In 2017 I was presented with the Best City Article award at the Holland Press Awards, for a feature about Rotterdam.

I was also the winner of British Annual Canada Travel Award for Best Online Coverage in 2017, after being a runner-up for that award during 2016.

In addition to winning awards I have been a runner-up on a number of occasions. For example, I was shortlisted for Travel Blogger/Vlogger of the Year at the Travel Media Awards of 2015 and 2016.

In August 2015 Go Eat Do was named eighth on a list of the top 50 UK food blogs to follow.

badgeWhile Go Eat Do was still a fledgling entity, Wanderlust magazine named one of the site’s posts as their Blog of the Week on 12 May 2014.
