Avis UK today announced the launch of its "A-List" Travel and Tourism Blog Awards, which have been created to celebrate the very best in travel blogging. Avis has launched the awards to honour the travel blogger community who help others discover new and exciting destinations across the world, sharing their adventures to inspire others to follow in their footsteps and experience life changing travel moments.

Bloggers can nominate their blogs by visiting the Avis blog and registering for the category they would like to enter. From travel photography, culinary delights and eco-tourism to extreme adventure and walking; the awards cover the full breadth of travel blogger expertise which so many jet setters have come to rely on for their trusted travel information.

Nominations are open now until 31st August 2012. The shortlist, decided by Avis’ team of travel experts, will be announced on the blog on 3rd September 2012. Voting will then open to the general public, who will have until 30th September to nominate their favourites. The winner of each category and overall winner will be announced on 1st October 2012.

Speaking about the new awards, Darren Peacock, Head of Marketing and Intermediaries, Avis Budget UK, said "We are immensely excited and proud to be launching these awards and hope it will bring well-deserved recognition to those bloggers who inspire and excite travellers with their creative and educational content. We look forward to reviewing the shortlisted sites and letting the voting public decide on the overall winners!"
