Matador is on a mission to create travel journalists. It hasn’t been easy, but passionate readers have joined us, making Matador the largest independent travel publication online, nearing 2 million unique visitors per month.
We’ve also won two consecutive Lowell Thomas awards for travel journalism excellence, and developed new models for partnering with brands, host countries, and major outlets such as National Geographic, CNN, and Google.
MatadorU is our online education community. Since launching in 2009, thousands of students have graduated from our programs. We hope you’ll join the MatadorU writers, photographers, and filmmakers winning awards, landing media jobs, and getting paid assignments around the world.
