ANIMATED ABOUT AGENTS: Get your own caricature from JTB

The Jamaica Tourist Board likes to get animated when it comes to travel counsellors – and to prove it, the JTB’s Canadian office is planning to create hundreds of unique, personalized caricatures as a gift to its travel partners.

In celebration of Travel Agent Day on May 7, and as a token of gratitude for all they do, agents are invited to upload a smiling photograph or headshot of themselves to the website designated below. The image will then be transformed into a creative cartoon character by Toronto-based caricature artist Cesar Vargas.

The first 200 agents to submit will receive a personalized caricature via email on May 4 and 5, just in time for Travel Agent Day. The Jamaica caricatures will reflect each agent’s individual style and personality and will be hand-drawn featuring island-inspired details and backgrounds.

“The tourism industry is full of characters and we are in awe of the passion and resilience demonstrated by our Canadian travel partners,” says Angella Bennett, Regional Director, Canada, Jamaica Tourist Board. “In honour of Travel Agent Day, we are giving back to this amazing community with unique custom-made caricature mementos that we hope will bring smiles to our agents’ faces and show them just how much Jamaica appreciates their dedication and support.”
