Entrepid travellers with a slick pen could earn a nice cash bonus to finance further travels by entering the Virtuoso Travel writing competition. The Luxury travel branding is sponsoring this annual Travel Dreams competition with the title ‘Why I travel’ for 2015.
This could be a road trip, somewhere unique you visited with your rental car, or simply a philosophical piece that justifies why you travel. But you better start chewing on your pencil end for ideas soon, the deadline for submissions is March 31st 2015.
In total Virtuoso has set aside $25,000 in cash prizes for the finalists, as chosen by the editors of their in-house travel magazine. Finalists, whose stories will also be published online, will be announced later in the year.
Virtuoso is a ‘by invitation only’ luxury travel advisor, with 9,000 elite travel advisors from 355 agencies worldwide, appealing to the luxury traveller and turning over more than $14 billion in sales annually.
Their travel concept works on the basis that people don’t have the time to book their own trip and would rather hiring an advisor to help them seek out the best vacation options.
