‘Where the Animals Go’ wins national travel publishing prize

Edward Stanford award for innovation goes to James and Oliver

‘Where the Animals Go’ wins national travel publishing prize

Where the Animals Go, by Dr James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti, has won the London Book Fair Innovation in Travel Publishing Prize in the 2016 Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards.

The book demonstrates how data and technology have changed our understanding of animal movement, and showcases the latest research and data visualisation techniques.

The scientific content, and focus on animals rather than humans, make the book very different from what readers may think of as travel writing, so it was a real surprise to James and Oliver that they were nominated for the prize in a shortlist of six.


Commenting on the winners, Tony Maher, Managing Director of Edward Stanford Limited, writes:

“As the world grows smaller and in many cases more dangerous, travel writing in all its forms keeps us in touch with our global family. These disparate shortlists have one unifying feature – they are all marvellous examples of what travel writing and publishing does best, which is to show the reader a world far from our own doorsteps, made reachable by these glorious, powerful and unforgettable books.”
