Contest Now Closed – winners to be announced September 15, 2010
(6/22/10) Looking to share your travels with others? Do you enjoy writing? Look no further. Dave’s Travel Corner is holding a travel essay contest. Please see below for details.
Please include your email address or some form of contact information at the bottom of your essay. This information will not be posted with your essay; it is so we can contact you in case you are a winner.
The essay must be written by you and it must be about something that inspired you on one of your travels. It could be about a particular place, a person, a country, a culture or any other number of things that may have touched you on your travels.
At least 1000 words – no more than 5000 words. Up to two (2) essays may be submitted per person. Essays or blogs already posted on Dave’s Travel Corner are not eligible for this contest. Journals published elsewhere that do not violate any copyright by posting them on Dave’s Travel Corner are eligible for the contest.
The grand prize winner will be awarded $150
The runner up will be awarded $100
Also note: a collection of mostly new travel books will be offered to all winners in the form of a list – each winner will choose two (2) books starting with the grand prize winner. These books will then be mailed to a provided address.
The three prize winners will be listed on the main page of Dave’s Travel Corner – with links to their winning essays posted on our main travel journals page.
All essays can be submitting by either Emailing a Word Document or using the GUEST LOGIN on the lower left hand side of our Journals Page. Any entries that are approved will be posted on our Journals page. Once posted your essay remains your property – it will only be posted on our site. Journals may be submitted to minor grammar and editing before being posted. We encourage photos to be included with your journals but a lack of photos does not factor in the contest decision making. Note that 325 pixels is the maximum width recommended for any uploaded photos.
Your essay must be submitted by September 1, 2010. Winners will be announced on Sept 15th, 2010 (contest has been extended, submit form was not working)
NOTE: Please include your email address or some form of contact information at the bottom of your essay.
