What is the fee to apply for the FoodTrekking Awards and how do we pay?
The current fee to apply for the 2018 FoodTrekking Awards is as follows:
US$275 Destination marketing organizations (CVBs, tourism offices, chambers of commerce, national tourism offices, etc.)
US$125 All other business types
World Food Travel Association members in good standing may qualify for discounted pricing (US$20 or US$40 for tourism office (destination) applications). See the member groups in our online community for details.
Payment is made online securely at the time you submit your application. All major credit and debit cards are accepted. Arrangements can be made to wire payment, although our bank imposes a hefty inbound wire fee that we have to pass along to applicants. You’ll be billed in US dollars most likely, so you should be prepared that your bank might charge you a processing fee or foreign exchange conversion fee.
The Awards don’t have a major sponsor yet, so to help offset the cost of producing the Awards, an application fee must be charged. Costs associated with producing the awards include the awards processing software; a small stipend for judges for each entry they review; the physical awards themselves (including shipping); website hosting; and website design. We have kept the application fee as low as possible to make it easier for more businesses to apply.
If your company is interested in sponsoring the Awards to help offset our program costs and reduce the application fee, please get in touch by submitting a support ticket. We offer generous sponsorship visibility options and would be happy to custom-design a sponsorship package that meets your specific needs.
