The Matador Travel Community, which I am a member and we have discussed here several times, has just launched its first travel writing and photography contest. The best travel essay (with photos) wins $500, and selected entries will be published on the site.
• All submissions must be your own work and previously unpublished.
• Articles should be between 1,000 – 2,000 words.
• At least three photos should accompany each article (Photographs may be taken by someone other than the writer, in which case, award will be split amongst the two).

• Please write “submission” plus title and your name in subject line
• Any author who submits a story must create a profile on Matador. Please include your screen name in the body of your email.
