Stop imagining, and get writing, because World Nomads want to send not one, but three budding travel writers to be mentored by a veteran Lonely Planet author and explore Europe on your own terms. They are offering a travel writing scholarship that is a brilliant opportunity for those budding writers who love to explore the world.
You must be older than 18 by the time applications close (May 15, 2014) and hold a valid passport with at least 6 months validity.
To enter, submit a 2500 character (or less) travel focused essay in English based on a personal experience around one of the following themes; ‘How did I end up here?’ or ‘The first time I…’ or ‘I’ll never forget the day that…’. You are also required to complete an entry form which includes contact details and a maximum 1200 character essay on why you should be chosen and what the opportunity means to you. In addition, you will submit two destinations that you would like to write about in Europe. These destinations will become guidelines for the European itineraries, which will also include a European festival (La Tomatina, Notting Hill Festival, World Bog Snorkelling Championships, Aste Nagusia fiesta). The 3 winners should open to other destination suggestions if necessary to the travel itinerary.
The scholarship entries can be submitted from April 9, 2014 and entries close at 2pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST, UTC +10) on May 15, 2014. Entries are deemed to be received at the time of receipt by WorldNomads.com and WorldNomads.com records are conclusive as to the time of receipt. All dates are subject to change if necessary in WorldNomads.com’s discretion.
