Nomad Africa nominated for Africa Tourism Leadership Awards 2020


Africa’s premier tourism magazine – Nomad Africa, has been nominated as one of the top three (3) nominees for the upcoming Africa Tourism Leadership Awards 2020 in the category: Outstanding Africa Tourism Media and Marketing Award.

The news comes on the back of the magazine’s growing acceptance in Africa and internationally, where in the last year, it had been recognized and trusted for diverse, rich, and powerful editorial content. 

 The winner of the category will be announced during the Africa Tourism Leadership & Awards event ceremony on Wednesday, 21 October 2020 in Kigali, Rwanda.

“We hope to win the award but, just being nominated is uplifting and a source of great pride since competition is tight in the African travel and tourism media space. The news is even sweeter and a relief in this time of the pandemic,” said Executive Publisher John Akinribido.

Africa Tourism Leadership Forum (ATLF) has pooled resources together with Rwanda Development Board to organize the awards.

The nomination in the Outstanding Africa Tourism Media and Marketing Award category is expected to elevate the Nomad Africa brand into the market, characterized by stiff competition from both new and established publications, in print and online.

Published quarterly, the magazine’s success in recent years include, among others, inking a long-term partnership with the global brand WTM Africa.

 “We are pleased to advise that the awards ceremony will be held physically in Kigali, Rwanda, and virtually for the rest of Africa. We would appreciate it if you could physically attend the awards ceremony. Africa Tourism Partners wishes you the best in the final adjudication of the awards,” reads a communication from Kwakye Donkor; (CEO) Africa Tourism Partners.
