TRVL iPad Magazine is a winner in Digital Magazine Awards 2011

15 DECEMBER 2011, LONDON, AMSTERDAM
Summary
After being rewarded by its readers with a 5-star rating for 365 days in a row, TRVL has now also been rewarded with the Travel Magazine of the Year Award.
TRVL, the only iPad travel magazine with a year-long five-star rating from users, has won Travel Magazine of the Year in the Digital Magazine Awards 2011. The Digital Magazine Awards showcase and celebrate the best magazines, editors, writers, photographers and designers from digital publishing.

The judges (CNN, Thomson Reuters, and more) comments were: "Wonderfully presented with really good use of video, social media and writing. A great concept, really interesting narrative and wonderful photography."
The other magazines in the category, several backed by corporate bodies, offered stiff competition but TRVL is proud of its five-star rating from users, a rating it has maintained for the entire year since its launch.

TRVL is a free iPad only travel and photography magazine that covers a single destination in each issue. It was the first iPad exclusive magazine in the world, started in a spare bedroom by founders Michel Elings and Jochem Wijnands. 

Kieran Meeke, TRVL's Editor-in-Chief said: "Despite being free, TRVL does not compromise in offering high quality photography and journalism. We also provide video, location-based photos and social media interaction which we will be building on to establish a real relationship with our readers. We know from their ratings how much they value the magazine." The awards were announced at an event in London on December 14 that both founders attended.

Jochem Wijnands: "TRVL is seen as a gift by our readers, which is precisely what we are aiming for. We respect them and see them as fellow travelers we are sharing our stories with."
