National Geographic Travel Writing Competition 2017
The National Geographic Travel Writing Competition 2017 is now open for entries from people who may want to transform their love of writing into a career.
15 May 2017
The winner will see their piece published in the magazine and online at the National Geographic Traveller (UK) website (natgeotraveller.co.uk), ensuring major exposure.
The winner will also join the 10-day Arctic Express: Greenland’s Northern Lights polar expedition with Quark Expeditions, worth £13,000 (thirteen thousand pounds). You’ll witness the world’s largest fjord system of Scoresby Sund, discover the fascinating Inuit settlements and people of Ittoqqortoormiit, and have the possibility of viewing some of the world’s most vivid displays of the Northern Lights.
OTHER KEY DATES
Expedition dates are 24 September to 3 October 2017 aboard the Ocean Nova.
Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).
Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
