- Be an image, video, blog or vlog post that is in English and publicly accessible
- Showcase a travel story, experience or location
- Show originality, creativity and be visually engaging
- Take 2 minutes maximum to review in full (view, watch or read)
- Your submission must be in English.
- Your 150 word or less written submission needs to convince their judges that you have a passion for travel and creating content as a career. They will be weighting your entry based on submitted content (80%) and your written submission (20%).
- Find your best travel content: Share an image, video, blog or vlog post that shows your creativity and passion for travel.
- Share it: Fill in the form, link to your content (publicly accessible) and say why you should win.
- Submit your entry: They will shortlist their favourites, meet you via Zoom and award their 4 scholarship winners.
