Behind the Awards

With the exception of the Audience Favorite award, the editorial team sent categories to more than 200 travel correspondents globally, then compiled their suggestions along with the Jetsetter team's.  A final committee of senior-level editors sat to debate and narrow the list down based on each category's criteria, then compiled a final selection of a winner and two runner-ups in each category.
