Seeking judges for 2014 Alto Awards

The Alto Awards recognize individuals and organizations committed to enriching Alberta’s tourism industry and who by their actions inspire others and demonstrate what can be achieved by working together.

The Alto Awards Committee is seeking judges to review and score entries in the following categories this year: Marketing Excellence, Marketing Partnership, Sustainable Tourism and Tourism Media.

Judges must be available to score the submissions from September 11 - 22. The amount of time required depends on the number of submissions in the category, however most judges devote 8 – 10 hours scoring the submissions. Judges must have access to the internet during this time. 

Results are then sent to an independent auditor, who tabulates the scores for each entry and informs the Alto Awards Manager of the results.

The awards will be presented in nine categories, and to Mr. Grant McCurdy, 2014 Alto Ambassador, on October 20, in conjunction with the Travel Alberta Industry Conference, October 19-21, 2014.

If you are interested in becoming an Alto Awards Judge, and have expertise in the above categories, please send your name and brief resume to Niesa Silzer, Alto Awards Manager at by August 15.
