At Terra Incognita we believe that ecotourism can be a powerful force for good in the world, and seek to promote the best examples of ecotourism worldwide. Our growing community of people and organisations is creating positive change for people and planet through travel.

As a social enterprise, we believe in the power of ethical ecotourism and storytelling for positive change. In 2018 we ran Wildlife Blogger of the Year, which engaged over 24,000 people from across the globe, attracted nearly 100 entries and built a community of talented eco-bloggers, while raising awareness about wildlife and nature travel.

This year, Travel Blogger of the Year 2020 seeks stories that raise awareness about our planet’s incredible places and people, and help explore our connection with nature and each other through ethical travel.

The competition opens for entries on Wednesday 30th October 2019 and closes at midnight on 31st December 2019.

The Power of Blogging

For most of us, stories began when we were young – read to us by our parents, passed down to us by our grandparents, read in our rooms, daydreamed in classrooms. They are a chance to imagine, share, reflect, interpret and learn.

However, in today’s fast-paced world storytelling is being lost – when it is needed most. From the documentaries and films that inspire us, to knowledge and values passed from generation to generation, stories are the universal language that bridges cultures and continents and creates connection, inspiration and positive change.

Bloggers are some of the greatest story-tellers of our time. They learn their craft on their own sites, and educate and inspire by sharing their thoughts, messages and experiences with the globe. Bloggers deserve more support, encouragement and publicity, and Travel Blogger of the Year 2020 is designed to achieve that.
