Matador is an independent media company and nexus of travel culture worldwide. Matador launched in 2006 with the vision for a travel site and community based not on “airline reservations and hotel rooms” but the real cultures, people, and places we encounter, as well as a broader global discussion of historical, political, and social-economic realities that inform our lives as travelers.
In the past six years we’ve established an environment of highly original and creative media, winning two consecutive Lowell Thomas awards for excellence in travel journalism, and developing into the largest independent travel publisher online, now reaching over 1.6 million unique monthly visitors.
MatadorU is a new media school offering courses in photography, writing, and filmmaking. It also provides career opportunities and a professional development community for travel writers, photographers, and filmmakers.
