blog.galveston.com Captures Gold in 2011 Travel Weekly Magellan Awards

Secaucus, NJ (October 4, 2011) - The winners of The 2011 Magellan Awards have been announced by Travel Weekly today.  With entries from across the US and around the world, the Magellan Awards is the premier awards program honoring the best in the travel industry.

Galveston.com & Company's blog.galveston.com, a sister blog site of Galveston.com, captured the Gold Award for the United States/Canada - Overall Destinations: City category.

Please visit www.travelweeklyawards.com to view this year’s award winners.

"This year's Magellan Award winners have once again impressed the judges with their creativity and sense of style," said Arnie Weissmann, editor-in-chief of Travel Weekly.  He added, "The recipients of the Magellans truly represent the best of the industry, and their accomplishments are inspiring."

The Magellan Awards are judged and overseen by a one-of-a-kind panel of top travel professionals representing the best names and most accomplished leaders from the industry.  The judging panel for Travel Weekly Magellan Awards included: Bob Dickinson, former President & CEO of Carnival Cruise Lines; Peter Greenberg, Travel Editor for The Early Show - CBS News; Patricia Schultz, author of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die; travel blogger Johnny Jet; Rudy Maxa, PBS Host of Rudy Maxa's World; and Lalia Rach,Professor/Founding Dean, NYU Tisch Center for Hospitality, Tourism and Sports Management.

In determining winners, entries do not compete with one another, instead they are judged against a standard of excellence based on the long experience of Travel Weekly. To uphold this high standard of excellence, a category may have multiple winners, or may have no winners at all.  Entries are evaluated on a ten point performance scale. The highest scoring entries will be selected as winners of Gold Magellan Awards, the very top honor. Other outstanding entries were awarded the Silver Magellan Award.

"All of us at Galveston.com & Company are thrilled to be honored with this win," said Jim Cordell, Vice-President . "I think to be mentioned in the same paragraph marketing-wise with this list of winners is a designation we at Galveston.com & Company find truly humbling. We greatly appreciate this recognition by such a reputable organization as Travel Weekly."
