Following on from the news earlier today that we’ll be providing a two-week trip to Japan and South Korea for the runner-up in our Student Travel Writer 2015 competition, it’s now time to announce the first prize – a holiday to New Zealand!

We’ve partnered with STA Travel to provide the winner’s prize, which will include a trip on the world-famous Kiwi Experience bus, taking in some of the best sites that the country has to offer.

From the adventure capital of Queenstown to the rolling hills best documented in a certain Middle Earth-based fantasy world, New Zealand is one of the world’s most sought-after destinations and one that should be high on any prospective travel writer’s bucket list.

The Kiwi Experience backpacker bus has various itineraries, and can take in everything from amazing and untouched beaches, unspoilt islands and native Maori culture to snow-capped mountain ranges and glaciers that descend into rainforest - depending on whether your tour takes place on the North or South island.

The top prize includes:

-          Return flights to New Zealand from the UK

-          A trip on the Kiwi Experience bus

-          Accommodation throughout

-          Various activities whilst in the country

-          A stopover in another destination en route (TBC)

If you think a New Zealand adventure sounds like your kind of thing (and honestly – who wouldn’t?) you’d better make sure you submit your entries to the competition sharpish.

We’ve had some great entries so far, but time is running out – entries close on 15th June, so you’ve got just over a month to make sure you’re in with a chance of winning this amazing prize.

See the existing entries here, read about the second prize that we’re offering (a cultural immersion trip to Japan and South Korea) and check out our expert judging panel.
