 About our Yearly Travel Writing Contests ($500 Grand Prizes+ !)
We are excited to continue to host three travel writing contests (see above) as a part of the continued 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 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 very 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 both on our website and in our web magazine.

Winning authors have often become regular contributors, enhanced their travel writing portfolios, and often go on to publication as writers and editors. In fact, Transitions Abroad has a long history of publishing travel writers who either are already or go on to become very successful authors and publishers. 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 in turn.
