 About our Yearly Travel Writing Contests ($500 Grand Prizes+ !)
We are excited to continue to host travel writing contests (see above) as a part of the continued celebration of 40 years of Transitions Abroad Publishing's existence as a trailblazing magazine, a publisher of books on work, study, travel and living abroad, and now a unique web guide and web magazine.

The contests reflect the fundamental editorial described in our mission statement, which includes cultural immersion and educational travel as well as work, voluntunteering, and living abroad.

The different contests, with more to come in the future, together allow for narrative, practical, and inspirational writing on subjects including travel, work, volunteering, study, and living abroad.

Since its founding by Dr. Clay Hubbs in 1977, Transitions Abroad has been recognized as a trailblazer in publishing travel articles, ranging from expert advice to useful tips to insightful first-hand participant reports from contributors and columnists around the globe. Winners of the contest provide much-needed information and inspirational ideas to millions of visitors of all ages not available elsewhere.

Please enter your submissions to our influential travel website, whose contests linked about all offer:

  • $500 cash prize for the first place winner
  • $150 for the second place winner
  • $100 for the third place winner
  • $50 for all runner-up winners

Winning articles will be featured on our website and via social media.

Authors who have won have often become regular contributors, enhanced their travel writing portfolios, and often go on to publish further as writers and editors. In fact, Transitions Abroad has a long history of publishing travel writers who either are already known or go on to become successful authors and publishers. We are committed to spotting new freelance talent as well as providing an outlet for professional writers. 

There are no submission fees for any of the travel writing contests.

Our judges read every story carefully and only ask that when writing you follow our contest guidelines carefully in turn.

We are also open to any suggestions related to themes as well as ideas for contests in the future.
