Guardian Travel Writing Competition

Ever fancied yourself as a travel writer?

Guardian third annual Readers' Travel Writing Competition invite you to write a 500-word feature about your 2010 holiday.

There are 8 categories:
A big adventure;
City break;
Our family holiday;
Green/responsible travel;
UK holiday;
Hotel review;

The 8 winning stories will be published in a special issue of Travel in November, along with some runners-up. The eight winners will also receive a fantastic holiday, which you will get to write up as a feature to be published in Travel next year. The judges will be looking for lively, personal stories that evoke a sense of place, reveal something new, and contain useful details, such as accommodation, attractions, restaurants and so on.

Your feature must not have been published before in any other printed publication or website. You can only enter one story per category.

Entries should be emailed to, specifying the category you are entering and your name in the subject bar. Your email must include your address and phone number.

The deadline is 23.59pm on 24 October 2010.

Unfortunately you need a UK address: open to UK residents aged 18 and over
