Awards call to action for Scilly


The Islands Partnership is encouraging businesses on the Isles of Scilly to enter the Cornwall Tourism Awards.

“Tourism is the lifeblood of Scilly’s economy and entering awards such as these enables businesses to showcase their talent and thank those who contribute to their success,” said Islands Partnership’s executive director, David Jackson.

“In the last two years, we’ve seen a number of Scilly businesses win awards, testimony to the increasing quality of the islands’ visitor experience.”

New categories this year include an award for Spas and Wellbeing, Active & Sporting experience, and Artistic, Cultural and Learning Experience. In recognition of the importance of attracting overseas visitors, there’s also a new award for International Visitor Experience.

These are in addition to existing Dog Friendly, Pubs and Restaurants, B&Bs, Hotels, Attractions, Business Tourism, Holiday Parks and Self Catering categories, and generic awards for Customer Service, Accessibility, Tourism Information and Sustainability.

Any business across the islands interested in taking part is welcome to contact the Islands’ Partnership for assistance or advice in completing the application.

The deadline for entering is midnight on June 12.
