We're on the look out for Scilly's Tourism Superstar - someone who is passionate about Scilly’s visitor offering and willing to represent the islands at the “Tourism Superstar 2014” awards. The competition, which is organised by VisitEngland in partnership with The Daily Mirror and Mirror Online, is an integral part of VisitEngland’s English Tourism Week.  Last year, it attracted some 4,000 votes on Mirror online and generated more than 60 pieces of press coverage including exposure on BBC Breakfast, as well as some fantastic conversations on Twitter and other social media channels. “We’re searching for someone who is passionate about Scilly as a visitor destination and who goes beyond the call of duty to make every visitor’s experience extra special,” says IP Tourism Coordinator, Amanda Pender.  “So long as that person works within tourism and is knowledgeable and enthusiastic, they are eligible." The nominee must be willing to participate and, if shortlisted, agree to travel to London in February to be filmed and feature on the Mirror website.  They will also be required to attend the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence in May. Email your nominations to or Twitter @IOSPartnership using #tourismsuperstarscilly and the nominee’s name.  Our deadline is noon, Friday 20th December. The IP will then collate a shortlist if required, and ask members to vote on a final decision.
