Matador Network's Newest Ambassadors: Jett & Kathryn Britnell.

“Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.” ~ L. Frank Baum.

Kathryn and I are thrilled to announce we have been accepted as Matador Ambassadors for Matador Network. At present, there are only 50 Matador Ambassadors globally.

Matador Ambassadors are leading photographers, journalists, musicians, artists, educators and writers with a passion for storytelling, travel, and conservation and whose work intersects place and travel culture. Matador Network is an independent media company and nexus of travel culture worldwide. It was the world’s first interactive travel magazine that has taken the best of professional journalism and online community and blended the two to create something much more compelling than either by itself. It is now one of the largest independent travel publishers online, reaching over 2 million unique monthly visitors.

According to SkiftIQ, a company who tracks social media metrics that covers the social media activity of over two thousand travel brands, “Matador Network is the most successful media brand on social media. Although its numbers in any of the four categories that we track do not rise to the level of first place, its mix of activity and heightened level of interaction with users through conversations, retweets, and shares, gives it the edge over its peers.”

We’re excited at the opportunity for our travel writing and images to reach a larger worldwide audience. Seems our status has also been elevated to "filmmaker"??? LOL, who knew? Anyway, we have several travel stories currently being developed.
