Hvar Blogger Paul Bradbury Wins FIJET Marko Polo Tourism Promotion Award

unnamedHvar’s most famous Brit, writer and blogger Paul Bradbury, has taken out this year’s FIJET National Marko Polo 2014 Tourism Award…

Bradbury, who operates the popular tourist portals Total Hvar, Total Split and Total Inland Dalmatia, was presented the award for best tourism reporting about Croatia from November 2013 – October 2014 in a ceremony in Zagreb on Tuesday. Bradbury, who swapped Manchester for the island of Hvar more than 12 years ago, has penned over 6,000 articles promoting what he says is a fabulous tourist destination.

“I am obviously delighted to win the Marko Polo award, especially as this is the first official recognition of our work after three years. Croatia is a fabulous country with great tourism possibilities, and I think that bloggers have an important part to play in bringing the magic of the country to international audiences, and I hope that there will official financial support in the future for projects such as Total Hvar, so that we can continue our work to bring tourists more comprehensive and interesting information and options than exist in the standard tourist brochures. Many thanks to my colleagues Slobodan Kadic and Dagmar Meneghello for proposing me for the award, and for the warm welcome into the wider FIJET family,” said Bradbury.

FIJET, or the World Federation of Travel Journalists, turned 60 years old this year.
