Vagabond Tours Accepts Two Top Awards

Vagabond Small Group Tours of Ireland is no stranger to accepting awards. In early February the company received not one but two 2019 Irish Tourism Industry Awards presented Feb. 2 at the Clayton Hotel in Dublin.

These awards recognize those people and companies that create enhanced experiences to draw people to Ireland. Awards are granted across 15 categories for general initiatives such as accommodation and marketing, and regional specific awards for the Atlantic Way, Hidden Heartlands and Ancient East. Fifteen winners were chosen from among 75 shortlisted nominees. For more on the awards see https://www.irishtourismindustryawards.ie/

Vagabond Small Group Tours of Ireland’s 6 Day Ancient Ireland Tour won in the category Best Ireland’s Ancient East Tourism Experience, under 25,000 visitors. “We introduced this tour in 2018 to help answer the question, “Who are the Irish?” explained Rob Rankin, co-owner with his wife, Amy Rankin. In their imaginations guests burrow into bogs, scale crenellated towers and shimmy up mountains for glimpses of Ireland beginning with Iron Age Celts sifted into Stone Age sands. See: https://vagabondtoursofireland.com/tour/6-day-eastern-ireland-tour/.

Best Environmental Tourism Innovative went to Vagabond Tours of Ireland for environmental initiatives that in some instances have led to significant cost savings for the company while other initiatives are viewed as company investments that “we hope will have a long-term benefit to the environment,” said Rankin. These include:

  • Offsetting the company’s total annual carbon emissions and restoring Ireland’s lost woodlands with a program of replanting indigenous Irish hardwood trees.
  • Offering free compostable cups to guests to use in local coffee shops instead of non-recyclable cups.
  • Giving each guest an aluminum water bottle to use instead of single use plastic bottles, helping to eliminate an estimated 30,000 fewer plastic bottles per year in Ireland.

Vagabond’s staff curate locally owned accommodations, pubs and restaurants that help serve their goal of authenticity. In the end the mission is to have guests “love Ireland as much as we do.” Transport is in custom mini buses, Mercedes ‘Vagatrons’ or 4×4 Sprinters Newtrons that allows access beyond where regular tour buses go.

MORE ABOUT THE 2018 FINALISTS

Tyler Boyd, Wide Receiver, Cincinnati #83

Now in his third season, Tyler Boyd has emerged as one of the focal points of this year’s passing attack in Cincinnati. After missing games last year due to injury, Boyd has bounced back in 2018 and is showcasing why he is one of the league’s top young wideouts. This season, Boyd was the most targeted receiver in Cincinnati and produced a career-high in receptions, yards and touchdowns. A second-round pick in the 2016 Draft and with a salary of $787,179, Boyd is a TVP candidate to keep on your radar. 

Chris Carson, Running Back, Seattle #32

In his second season, Chris Carson has quickly developed into a star for Seattle. After playing in just four games as a rookie, Carson burst on to the scene this year and established himself among the league’s top running backs. With multiple games this season over 100 rushing yards, Carson has been an integral part of Seattle’s offense and ranks among league leaders in total rushing yards. As a seventh-round draft pick in 2017 with a base salary of $550,000, Carson is very strong candidate for this year’s TVP award.

Kenny Golladay, Wide Receiver, Detroit #19

In just his second season, Kenny Golladay has proven that he is one of the most dangerous wide receivers in the league. A major part of Detroit’s passing attack, Golladay posted impressive numbers and set career-highs in nearly every receiving category. With multiple games of at least 100 receiving yards, the gifted receiver is on track to record his first career 1,000-yard season. A third-round pick in the 2017 draft and with a base salary of $586,000, Golladay is a candidate to keep an eye on for this year’s TVP award.

Phillip Lindsay, Running Back, Denver #30

Born and raised in Denver, Phillip Lindsay is not just an amazing story playing for his hometown team, but one of the league’s most dangerous running backs in 2018. With incredible speed and quickness, Lindsay continues to lead Denver’s rushing attack as he is on pace to eclipse 1,000 rushing yards in just his first season. An undrafted rookie, Lindsay is also a major threat in Denver’s passing attack. With a base salary of just $480,000, Lindsay is a definitely a TVP candidate worth consideration.

Blake Martinez, Linebacker, Green Bay #50

In his third season, Blake Martinez is already making his case as one of the best linebackers in the league. With a knack for being around the ball and making plays, Martinez continues to lead the much-improved Green Bay defense. With multiple games of having 10 or more tackles, Martinez has easily eclipsed 100 total tackles this year and is on pace to finish among the league leaders in that category. With a base salary of just $630,000, the 2016 fourth-round pick is a worthy candidate to capture this year’s TVP award.

The Harvey Awards Announces Inductees

The Harvey Awards today revealed the inductees to its Hall of Fame and recipients of the International Spotlight Award and Comics Industry Pioneer honor in advance of its 30th anniversary ceremony during New York Comic Con on Friday, October 5. The inductees into the Hall of Fame will be Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) and Roz Chast (The New Yorker). Harold Sakuishi (BECK) will receive the International Spotlight Award. The event also marks the debut of the Comics Industry Pioneer honor, which will be presented to http://www.sdcomicfest.org/jackie-estrada/.

For legendary comic book artist Dave Gibbons, his career comes full circle with this Hall of Fame award. Thirty years ago, during the first Harvey Awards in 1988, he won a number of awards for his work with Alan Moore on what has now become one of the most acclaimed and honored titles in the history of comics — Watchmen. Gibbons has worked on numerous titles for U.K. and U.S. publishers, including Give Me Liberty, a collaboration with Frank Miller, and Kingsman, which he co-created with Mark Millar and which was adapted into a film franchise.

Since 1978, Roz Chast and her work for The New Yorker have been an essential part of the American humor landscape. Many of her 800-plus cartoons are among the magazine’s most memorable. She is a recipient of the Reuben Award, the highest honor in the cartooning profession, from the National Cartoonists Society. Chast’s 2014 graphic memoir, Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?, won a National Book Critics Circle Award and was shortlisted for a National Book Award.

Manga artist Harold Sakuishi, recipient of the International Spotlight Award, has published several award-winning works in his native Japan, but will probably forever be entwined with his groundbreaking marriage of manga and indie rock, BECK, which is currently being published in its entirety in English for the first time by Kodansha Comics and comiXology Originals. This is a rare stateside appearance by the manga legend.

Jackie Estrada will receive the inaugural Comics Industry Pioneer honor, which is given to industry professionals who have made significant contributions toward and shown continuing dedication to the advancement of sequential art. She is being honored for her promotion of comics and their creators through her various roles at San Diego Comic-Con over the past five decades, her books of photographs featuring comics creators, her involvement in Friends of Lulu, and her administration of the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards since 1990.

The Harvey Awards honors achievement in comic books across a variety of categories and represents one of the industry’s longest-running annual events. Named after Harvey Kurtzman, the late cartooning genius who is best remembered for creating MAD, this year the Harveys return to the birthplace of comics and the lifelong home of Kurtzman himself: New York City. ReedPOP, the world’s leading producer of pop culture events, will host the 2018 Harvey Awards on Friday, October 5, at Shop Studios.

The Harvey Awards Steering Committee is co-chaired by Nellie Kurtzman, John Lind, and Chip Mosher.

The Television Critics Association (TCA), a media organization with more than 200 professional TV critics and journalists from the United States and Canada, announced today the nominations for the 33RD Annual TCA Awards. The 2017 TCA Awards recognize outstanding television programming in the 2016-2017 season, honoring actors, producers and programs in a variety of categories, including news and information, youth, reality, drama and comedy. Any show airing the majority of its season between June 1, 2016 and May 31, 2017 was eligible for consideration. The winners of the 33RD Annual TCA Awards will be announced at the invitation-only presentation on Saturday, August 5, 2017, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, as part of the group’s summer press tour. Legendary TONY® and EMMY®-winning entertainer Kristin Chenoweth serves as host for the evening’s festivities.

This year’s nominations are spread across three broadcast networks—ABC, CBS and NBC—as well as PBS, 10 cable networks, and internet-streaming services Amazon, Hulu, and Netflix. For the second consecutive year, HBO is in the lead with 12 nominations; FX has 11; Netflix has 10; NBC has seven; Hulu has four; ABC and PBS have three; Amazon, Disney and Showtime each have two; and A&E, AMC, BBC America, CBS, CNN, ESPN, and TBS finish with one.

The awards ceremony puts the spotlight on a roster of diverse programs and performances, a wide variety of themes and subjects from heart-pounding genre fare and historical docuseries, to emotional dramas, irreverent comedies, and everything in-between. This year’s notable nominees include Oscar® winners Nicole Kidman, Jessica Lange, and Susan Sarandon; sitcom standout Kristen Bell; versatile writer-director-stars Donald Glover and Aziz Ansari; as well as dynamic programming featuring ESPN’s five-part miniseries event “O.J.: Made In America;” Amazon’s tragicomic British series “Fleabag;” Showtime’s controversial political profile “Weiner;” and FX’s Golden Age diva drama “Feud: Bette And Joan,” among others.

The lineup also features a fresh batch of first-time nominees including an unprecedented double nomination for Carrie Coon for her performances in “The Leftovers and “Fargo;” “Fleabag” favorite Phoebe Waller-Bridge; the ‘80s-inspired creature caper “Stranger Things;” A&E’s investigative reality series “Leah Remini: Scientology And The Aftermath;” NBC’s heavenly sitcom “The Good Place;” ABC’s compassionate family comedy “Speechless;” Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K.’s bittersweet parenting dramedy “Better Things;” the celebrated Queen Elizabeth epic “The Crown;” and the CNN news show “The Lead With Jake Tapper.”

Locked in a tight race for the honor of Program Of The Year is an impressive list of competitors that includes the FX comedy-drama “Atlanta;” HBO’s star-studded suburban murder mystery “Big Little Lies,” and the spiritually rich final season of “The Leftovers;” Netflix’s smash sci-fi thriller “Stranger Things;” NBC’s multi-generational drama “This Is Us;” and the acclaimed dystopian opus “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which netted Hulu its first-ever TCA Awards nominations.

“This was truly a landmark season for diversity in television, and the TCA nominations reflect this. Our members have chosen a variety of series that celebrate and represent a wide spectrum of performances,” said TCA President Amber Dowling. “With so many great programs—both new and returning—it was a real challenge for our members to whittle these nominees down. We’re excited to see which programs and performers make the cut as voting now gets underway to determine the TV standouts of the 2016-17 season.”

The Summer TCA Press Tour will be held Tues., July 25 through Wed., Aug. 9.
