Bradt travel guides

The Bradt Travel Guides New Travel Writer of the Year competition offers the chance for three aspiring travel writers to see their talent recognised at a glittering awards ceremony in the presence of some of the country’s best-known travel writers, publishers and editors. Furthermore, the first prize this year is a brilliant four-night summer break for two in Swedish Lapland, courtesy of tailor-made holiday specialists Discover the World. The winner will receive a commission to write an article about their trip for Timeless Travels Magazine (giving them a published piece for their CV), as well as a unique antique globe trophy and a place on the next Bradt Travel Writing Seminar (run in conjunction with leading travel-writing training agency Travellers’ Tales).
