ITB Book Awards 2021: The winners have been announced

Award winners include the authors Prof. Dr. Markus Rex, Prof. Terje Tvedt, Jochen Wiede, Simon Winder, Erik Fosnes, Ebba D. Drolshagen, Susanne Phillipps, Dr. Andreas von Heßberg, Uri Jeremias and Hans Sautter. The Lifetime Award goes to Clemens Schüssler from the Munich publishing house GeraNova Bruckmann.

Every year, the annual ITB Book Awards recognise tourism publications from Germany and abroad, mainly in German, but also in German translation. The aim is to focus attention beyond national borders on a broad spectrum of important travel and tourism publications. In 2021, ITB Berlin is again partnering with Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels. The ITB Book Awards do not confer prize money.

In the run-up to ITB Berlin NOW 2021, which due to the pandemic will be an entirely virtual event and will not be holding an awards ceremony, in December 2020 the large-format wall calendar ‘Japan 2021 – Land of the Rising Sun’ (Weingarten/Athesia Kalenderverlag) was picked for the Travel Calendar Award. It offers a foretaste of the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo. Other titles in the categories ’Cultures’ and ’Management Award of ITB Berlin’ are dedicated to the far-east destination of Japan.
