This competition from Travelex and Penguin is for a 'travel savvy' short story. The prize is £1,500 plus a session with a Penguin editor.
Hmmm, I'm very keen on travel, writing and competitions, so how come I don't do any travel writing and just use these competitions as an excuse to bore you with my holiday photos?
If that doesn't appeal, you make like this poetry competition which offers a $200 first prize.
As usual, both competitions are free to enter.
