The Bulgarian Association of Journalists and Travel Writers (ABUJET) has established an award in honour of the late Maxim Minchev, long-time director general of the Bulgarian News Agency and ABUJET president, traveler and storyteller. The first award will be presented in the BTA’s Maxim Hall on June 5, which is Minchev's birthday, ABUJET Secretary General Plamen Starev told BTA on Tuesday. 

The winners will be journalists and writers actively working to fulfill the goals of ABUJET to help explore the world, including Bulgaria, and to tell about it in the language of international tourism, Starev said.

The deadline for submitting nominations has expired and each ABUJET member had the opportunity to nominate a colleague considered most worthy of being the first recipient of the award. In May, a seven-member jury will determine the winner.

ABUJET is an abbreviation of the Association of Bulgarian Journalists and Tourism Writers, based on its spelling in French. Its members include more than 60 journalists from various media - print, radio, television, as well as bloggers and writers, Starev said.

ABUJET is a member of FIJET, the World Federation of Travel Journalists and Writers.
