| We are excited to continue to host 3 travel
writing contests (see above) as a celebration of 38+ 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
The contests reflect the fundamental editorial described
in our mission statement,
which includes cultural immersion and educational travel
as well as work or living abroad.
The 3 contests together allow for narrative, practical, and inspirational
writing on subjects including most forms of travel, work,
living, study, and volunteering 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 now offer:
- $500 cash prize for the first
- $150 for the second place winner
- $100 for the third place winner
- $50 for all runner-up winners
Winning articles will be featured both on our website and
in our web magazine.
Winning authors have often become regular
contributors and enhance their travel writing portfolios. Transitions Abroad has a long history of publishing travel writers who either are already or go on to become successful authors. We are committed to spotting new freelance talent as well as providing an outlet for professional writers.
Unlike many contests, 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
