I'd love to hear your competition news. Have you entered any comps? Had any luck? Heard about interesting contests? Got any tips to pass on? (Although I only feature free to enter competitions in my posts it's fine to share news about other competitions too.)
For those who are unsure, this post explains how to leave a comment. (If you've subscribed to the blog by email and wish to respond, you'll need to click on the link and add a comment – it's not possible to do this by replying to the email.)
Thanks to Alyson Hilborne for passing on details of this free to enter travel writing competition. They want no more than 500 words about a 'stand out travel experience'. The prize is publication in National Geographic and a two week trip to Vietnam (including flights). Alyson shares loads of interesting writing news on her twitter account, including competitions, giveaways and calls for submission.
If anyone sends me a link to a free to enter writing competition and would like a link back to their blog, website, social media account etc, please include that link when you email/message me.
Here's a monthly travel writing competition with a £250 prize and the chance of £1,000 for the best one of the year. This one also has a 500 word requirement and is free to enter.
If you've been reading the blog for a while you'll know that any mention of travel is my cue to spam you with photos. These are of R'ten – our mobile writing retreat, photographic base and means of transport. She's taken me to present workshops and meet writing friends around the British Isles.
