To mark its 50th anniversary, the British Guild of Travel Writers (BGTW) has launched a competition to champion new writing talent.

Open to writers over the age of 18 that have not been previously published in the travel field, entrants are required to submit an 800-word article on the theme of ‘a very special place’.

First prize is a four-day travel writing holiday to Istanbul; while second prize is a trip to Berlin.

The deadline is December 31 and full details of how to submit your work can be read at this link.

    I think they still do this comp each year. The prizes tend to go to writers who make a living out of comps. Not sure they are really “new talent” in travel writing. But it brings BGTW a bit of publicity each year.
