The UK-based Bradt Travel Guides has announced a travel writing competition open to all writers over the age of 18.

Applicants can submit a well-written 800 word essay responding to the contest theme, “Destination Unknown,” in one of two categories: unpublished travel writer or published travel writer.

A first-place winner will be awarded a trip for two to Colombia. In addition, his or her winning essay will be published in The Independent on Sunday, a newspaper that will also grant the winning writer a commission.

A second winner will be awarded a travel writing course in Spain, courtesy of contest partner, Travellers’ Tales.
