Love blogging? Love shopping? Love travel? If so, we want to hear from you. We’re looking for exciting writers who blog about the joys of travel shopping. It could be a post on the airports you rate for retail therapy, or, the amazing travel-exclusive products you’ve picked up, or, your essential airport shopping lists. Whatever you choose to blog about, if you’re writing about travel shopping we want to be reading you.

PretAirporter will host the monthly PretAirporter Travel Shopping Blog Awards, a recognition of the importance that bloggers and key opinion leaders play in raising the profile of travel shopping.

Each month the best posts across beauty, fragrance, fashion, luxury, watches and jewellery, fine wines & spirits, and general travel shopping will be assessed, with the best each winning a US$300 cash prize, a ticket in Dubai Duty Free’s Finest Surprise luxury car draw and a special PretAirporter award logo.

To be considered for the monthly awards, all online posts must include a reference to and be dedicated to the travel shopping channel and its products.

The initiative will culminate in December with the PretAirporter Blogger and Key Opinion Leader of the Year Awards, featuring some outstanding cash and product prizes and winners’ trophies. The ultimate winner will also earn a paid stint as Editor-in-Residence at PretAirporter.

The award categories include:

· Blogger of the Year – Beauty

· Blogger of the Year – Luxury
· Blogger of the Year – Wines & Spirits
