Share This Article:
Where’s that year gone?! In 2015 we launched our first ever Student Travel Writer competition, and it was awesome. Runner-up Daniel Lee has just finished his trip to South Korea and Japan, and the overall winner Shona Jackson will soon embark on her trip to New Zealand – not bad, hey? We are again looking to reward the next generation of travel writers, and are launching the competition for a second year. The contest will be judged by industry insiders and travel writing experts (find out who they are HERE), and your work will have the attention of travel mags, tourism boards and other travel professionals. If you win you’ll get a place on a 12-day trip around Cambodia - find out more here. So, how will it work? The competition will run in the following way: April to July 2016 - Open Submissions: Student writers can submit their travel content to The National Student website, to make their way onto the shortlist of five finalists. Entries must original pieces and be flagged with the line ‘This is a Student Travel Writer competition entry’ at the bottom of submitted entries. New student writers who wish to enter can do so by applying for a writer account HERE. August 2016 – Travel Assignments – Five finalists will be sent on specific travel assignments. September 2016 - Winner and Runner-Up announced.
