A prize of $1,000 and publication in the biannual anthology The Best Travel Writing and on the Travelers’ Tales website is given annually for a travel essay. Writers from Arizona and Vermont are eligible for publication, but not the cash prize due to the laws governing pay-to-enter competitions in those states. The editors will judge. Using only the online submission system, submit an essay of 750 to 5,500 words with a $25 entry fee by September 21. All entries are considered for publication. Visit the website for complete guidelines.
