The Mid Wales Tourism Awards recognise and reward excellence within the tourism sector throughout Powys, the Brecon Beacons, Ceredigion and Meirionnydd.
Tourism Awards are well established in North and South Wales, and for some time now Mid Wales Tourism has lobbied for greater recognition of the Mid Wales region. We are delighted to secure VisitWales' support.
The awards will open for nominations in May 2019. Sub categories for each of the main awards will give smaller businesses in Mid Wales the opportunity to compete at regional level and be recognised as finalists, with one overall winner going forward to the national VisitWales Awards in March 2020.
The Regional Approach
We welcome applications from throughout the region which includes Powys, Ceredigion & Merionnydd.
For businesses on the borders: we believe it is your decision whether to apply for the Mid Wales Tourism awards, or whether you apply for other regional awards. Scoring criteria will consider whether businesses are proactively marketing themselves as 'Mid Wales' based, and promoting the Mid Wales destination. If you apply to the Mid Wales Tourism Awards please note this precludes you from applying for another region's tourism awards, for the same category in the same year.
