Wild For Scotland is nominated for a Travel Media Award 2023

Wild For Scotland has been nominated for "Broadcast Programme of the Year" award in this year's Travel Media Awards. Launched in 2015, the Travel Media Awards is widely recognised as the premier awards event in travel media, and the only UK national awards exclusively rewarding editorial excellence and achievement across all forms of travel media.

The shortlisted titles in 2022 included The Sunday Times, Metro, Which? Travel, CNN, Channel 4, BBC Travel, Good Housekeeping, Radio Times, SUITCASE Magazine, Telegraph Travel, The Guardian and Sunday Mirror.

This year, a judging panel made up of over 60 judges from leading travel businesses and travel media whittled down hundreds of entries to this shortlist representing the very best of travel journalism, photography and broadcasting. Over 120 finalists have been recognised across the awards’ 21 categories, which celebrate all areas of trade and consumer travel media.

The episodes submitted were the 'The Land of Stories', a sponsored episode produced in partnership with Badenoch, The Storylands and 'Creature of the Sea', a poetry episode featuring music from Jen Austin and inspired by a snorkelling residency at the Argyll Hope Spot.

These two episodes really show the breadth of storytelling and podcasting formats we use on the show and we're sure the judges will notice that too!

Creator and Host Kathi Kamleitner said:

"I am thrilled that Wild For Scotland is a finalist for the "Broadcast Programme of the Year" award in this year's Travel Media Awards. Our wee independent podcast about the places I love and care about is making waves 💙 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿Thanks as always to my partner in crime Francesca Turauskis for keeping me on course and making the show sound so good! I'm so proud today 💛"

Other nominees for the "Broadcast Programme of the Year" category include the Discovery Channel's Expedition Borderlands with Ash Bhadwaj and Levison Wood, The Last of Albania's Sworn Virgins from BBC World Service and BBC Reel, Australia's Northern Territory: From the Top to the Rock by The Independent, and The Ski Podcast by Iain Martin. It just goes to show how independent podcasting can hold its own against the major networks and channels.

Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 23rd October at The Savoy, London - we're keeping out fingers crossed!
