Wikitravel is a web-based collaborative travel guide project, based upon the wiki model, launched by Evan Prodromou and Michele Ann Jenkins in 2003. In 2006, Internet Brands bought the trademark and servers and later introduced advertising to the website. This move met opposition from users, with many German and Italian editors leaving for a newly established wiki, Wikivoyage. Wikitravel received a Webby Award for Best Travel Website in 2007. That same year, Wikitravel’s founders began Wikitravel Press, a now-defunct project which published printed travel guides based on the Web site’s content. The first print guides were released on February 1, 2008. In 2012, a large portion of the editing community, including the founders, left and brought their contributions to the Wikivoyage project, which was relaunched as a Wikimedia Foundation-hosted project in January 2013.
