Book awards

ITB Book Awards

From cultural or adventure trips to beach or hiking vacations to business or city travel: Each year at the ITB Book Awards an independent jury bestows prizes to outstanding literary or journalistic works in the area of travel and tourism.

The Destination Awards, which are always dedicated to one special destination, are in the foreground. The aim of the awards is to draw attention to a wide range of travel and tourism publications for the discerning reader. The majority of the jury’s nominations are the result of their own research. Several awards can be made in each category. The ITB Book Awards do not confer money prizes.

The ITB Book Awards are given by Messe Berlin.

Unfortunately, an award ceremony will not take place in 2021 due to the pandemic.

Information and publications

This year's purely digitally produced award winners brochure with the jury statements ITB BookAwards 2021 can be found here.

Beginning in 2018, ITB Berlin will award the ITB BookAwards in cooperation with Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels. This new concept means the travel publication awards will receive valuable exposure through marketing and communications support. For example, they will become part of the Börsenverein book marketing campaign entitled »JETZT EIN BUCH!«.
