Croatia Airlines’ inflight magazine received an award for best Croatian promotional travel magazine
13th December 2018, Zagreb
At today’s Marco Polo – Famous Travel Writer awards ceremony, a traditional event organised by the Croatian Association of Travel Journalists and Writers (FIJET Croatia) in collaboration with the Tourist Journalists Assembly of the Croatian Journalists Association, Croatia, the Croatian national carrier’s inflight magazine, was given a special prize for best Croatian promotional travel magazine.
At today’s ceremony, Ms Ksenija Žlof, who has been the editor-in-chief of the Croatia inflight magazine for nearly 25 years, was also given a special prize for her long-standing contribution to the popularisation and affirmation of tourist journalism and the promotion of Croatian tourism.
The said awards were presented to Croatia Airlines’ marketing team by Mr Tijani Haddad, President of the World Federation of Travel Journalists and Writers (FIJET), and Ms Tina Čubrilo, President of FIJET Croatia.
Croatia Airlines has been publishing its inflight magazine, Croatia, uninterruptedly since 1994 (its 25th anniversary will be celebrated next year) four times a year, with the aim of promoting Croatian culture, heritage, natural beauties and various engaging topics from Croatia, and with the aim of providing support to Croatian tourism. With its visual identity, which is an integral part of the company’s visual identity, Croatia has successfully been conveying the country’s national features, thus contributing to the recognisability of Croatia in the world.
It is worth pointing out that, during the past years, the Marco Polo – Famous Travel Writer award was also given to many tourist journalists whose travel pieces and reports have been published in the Croatia inflight magazine. Amongst them was Saša Pjanić, who won FIJET’s 2015 Grand Award for the travel piece he published in Croatia Airlines’ inflight magazine. Another was Slobodan Bukvić, and this year’s prize winner was Davorka Vukov Colić, Croatia’s long-time contributor.
The Marco Polo – Famous Travel Writer awards are given to national and foreign tourist journalists and travel writers for their contribution to the popularisation and affirmation of tourist journalism, in recognition of the many years of their work and contribution to tourist journalism, and for their promotion of the high ethical and professional standards of tourist journalism.
