The Phone Book, Belize's Most Widely Distributed Book?

And moving on from politics now to the most widely distributed book in Belize.  It's not the bible, but the phone book. 

This year's directory was unveiled today, with its usual pomp and ceremony, and the image which made it on the front cover was captured by Darren Lamb, a tour guide from the Cayo District, who went out on a trip to Caye Caulker. His photo entry was chosen from a competition on Facebook in which BTL asked customers to decide on which image is the most appropriate.

Today, he received his prizes and recognition for capturing that image, and explained the origin of that photo:

Because his image made it on the cover of this year's directory, BTL awarded him with an Apple iPad 4, and a year's worth of free DigiCell service.

The BTL Telephone Directory has been around since 1974, and since 2007, the company has been producing it on their own.

BTL Yellow Pages 2014 Video

BTL has a video out that talks about, and shows a lot of, the new 2014 phone directory. It highlights the photo competition they had to find the cover picture. Congratulations to Darren Lamb for taking the winning shot! You can see the congratulatory party BTL had at Chaa Creek for Darren, see his award winning picture, and also learn about the directory for mobile devices. Darren explains the picture here.

"Today was a nice and sunny day and also it was the launch of our 2014 Telephone Directory, Take a look at the video and see how the enhancements to the book and also find out how we did this years cover. Enjoy"

BTL’s 2014 Directory Cover Highlights Belize’s Adventure

This year’s cover selection was done via the Company’s Facebook page which encouraged online interaction and participation of our fan base. Individuals were able to make any number of submissions capturing the theme of their Belizean adventure. The top three pictures with the most ‘likes’ were selected as the first, second and third place winners.

Of the hundreds of submissions received, the picture submitted by Mr. Daren Lamb ranked first with a total of 1,396 likes. Gracing this year’s cover is his uniquely spectacular and uncommon wilderness experience that encapsulates the combined beauty of the Caribbean Sea and a determined Tern. In addition to capturing the bragging rights to have his picture grace the cover of this year’s Telephone Directory, Mr. Daren Lamb was also rewarded with an Apple iPad 4 and 1 year free Digicell service.

You can get your copy of the 2014 Telephone Directory as of Today, Tuesday, April 1, 2014 by visiting the nearest BTL Customer Service Center and present your most recent BTL bill receipt.
