Time is running out
to enter the annual competition:
This year, bigger and better than ever before.
The wonderful main prize is an eight-day fly-drive holiday for two to Iceland,
provided by Discover the World,
publication of the winning entry in the travel section of The Independent on Sunday,
and a commission from the newspaper to write a feature article about the prize visit to Iceland.
This prize can be won by either a previously published or an unpublished writer.
The Best Unpublished Writer will receive a holiday for two (to Italy’s Cinque Terre),
the opportunity to write a short piece about the trip for publication
on The Independent’s website, and a place on a travel-writing weekend run by Travellers’ Tales,
the UK’s leading training agency for travel writing.
Finally, a winner of the Best Young Writer Prize will secure a place
on a Bradt travel-writing seminar (the next one is in November this year)
with a panel including Ben Ross, travel editor of The Telegraph
and a selection of five Bradt books of their choice.
The theme for this year’s competition is ‘Serendipity’
and details on how to enter can be found at www.bradtguides.com/travelwriting
