Entries are now open for the 2019 Surface Travel Awards, our third annual tribute to the world’s best, most thoughtfully conceived spaces and products at the intersection of travel and design

At Surface, we explore the world through the lens of design. So we know that great design touches on every moment of a trip—providing inspiration, easing the journey, creating moments of comfort and delight. The Surface Travel Awards honor the best of the new spaces and products—hotels, restaurants, museums, pop-ups, airports, luggage, and more—that travelers experienced this year.  

The Surface Travel Awards have become one of the most prestigious award programs in the design and travel industries. They will be decided by a distinguished panel of jurors, as well as by members of The List, the definitive directory of Surface-approved design firms, brands, and more, and by Surface’s editorial team.

Entry Deadline: May 30, 2019.
