The ITB Berlin is proud to present the annual ITB BookAwards. These awards are given to recognize outstanding journalistic achievements in the field of travel and tourism, primarily in German or German translation. The overarching goal is to draw attention beyond borders to the diverse spectrum of significant publications.
The winners of the ITB BookAwards 2024 were carefully selected by an independent and expert jury consisting of professionals in science, country experts, media, journalism, and the book trade. This panel ensures an objective selection of outstanding works that contribute to enriching the literary landscape in the field of travel and tourism.
The ITB Berlin sees the BookAwards as a platform that puts authors, publishers, and their works at the forefront to promote international exchange and the recognition of exceptional literature. We look forward to honoring the winners of the ITB BookAwards 2024 and acknowledging their outstanding contributions to the world of travel and tourism writing.
The primary category, "DestinationsAward," of this year's ITB BookAwards is dedicated to the travel destination "Oman," which is concurrently the official guest country of ITB Berlin 2024. This year, we are placing a special focus on outstanding travel contributions that represent the captivating destination of Oman.
In addition, the new category "Alice" will, for the second time, recognize excellence in children's and youth books with a travel theme, as well as stories that resonate with young readers. This initiative sets new standards and underscores our commitment to captivating literature with a travel focus, engaging young audiences.
