LCD Awards, in partnership with The New York Times, celebrate exceptional cultural contributions to the world. Cultural destinations are no longer only for art experiences and education; they have become social hubs for visitors to spend time, dine, shop, work and even sleep! The LCD Awards recognise the connection between destinations and their cultural offering and institutions.
Culture has also become one of the top reasons to choose a destination, and these awards will offer destinations a great opportunity to gain a prestigious accolade that helps them to entice the travelling world!
The judging process for The Leading Culture Destination Awards is carefully crafted and the jury consists of Industry thought leaders and cultural innovators – these are people whose lives don’t separate business and pleasure, who travel widely and live and breathe culture.
The LCD Awards gain great press coverage with: CNN, Conde Nast Traveller, Daily Mail, The Telegraph, Le Figaro, Forbes, Le Monde – to name just a few!
