The Caribbean Tourism Industry cherishes its strong relationship with the Media and in appreciation for their constant positive coverage of the Region, recognizes media for influencing their readers to travel to the Caribbean.
  
This recognition will take place at the Caribbean Tourism Industry Awards Dinner on Thursday, June 7, 2018, during Caribbean Week New York.

To honour the media’s exceptional work in promoting the Caribbean, in feature print, broadcast and online we invite CTO government members, their public relations agencies and journalists to provide us with their top media placements for 2017 on CTO member countries.  We are also inviting submission of photography that has captured the essence of the Caribbean. 

This year we have added two new categories – the "Up the Social Ladder" award for best social media campaign by a CTO member country and the "Look, I’m Going Social" award for best social media coverage of an event/activity by a journalist or influencer.
