Bound Round to sponsor major ASTW travel award

The Australian Society of Travel Writers is delighted to announce Bound Round will be sponsoring the award for Best Family Travel Story at the ASTW Awards later this month.

Bound Round is a new Australian company that aims to make it easier for families to book the perfect holiday. Fully online, Bound Round creates and distributes content for kids and families who love to travel. Its website is a one-stop travel research and booking platform, full of candid reviews of what makes the best family holidays.

The Best Family Travel Story category is for articles published about families with children travelling together in Australia or overseas. Stories may describe travel destinations or experiences and may range from a single destination to several destinations, products or activities. Stories may also include tips and advice on travelling to or in that destination specific to the needs of families.

The award is one of 19 to be presented at the ASTW Travel Journalism Awards for Excellence gala evening on 19 August 2017. The celebration of outstanding travel writing, photography, and tourism communications is part of the annual ASTW Convention to be held on the Sunshine Coast from 18-20 August 2017.
