Q. What is the AGM Host Destination Award?

The AGM Host Destination Award allows you to submit your favourite stories based on your travel experiences gained during your attendance at one or both of the past two TMAC conferences (i.e., Quebec City and Victoria)

Q. What is the Best Travel Column/Blog?

Although all categories welcome online submissions, we felt it was important to introduce an award that allows you to submit three recent samples of a travel column or blog for which you are the author. 

Q. What is the Best Video or Vlog

We recognize that some of our members are producing vlog/video content on a more regular basis and felt that it was important to introduce an award that allows an opportunity for these members to submit in this category.

Q. What is the People's Choice Best Photo Ever

Submit your best photo ever and let your fellow TMAC members decide! Your photos will be featured on line in a slide show format. Members will have access to a electronic ballot to vote.

Please e-mail Elizabeth Kerr with your question.
