The deadline for the Solas Awards for Best Travel Story of the Year is October 15 - that's ten days from right now - and we've been told that there are a few story categories in which the "competition is light:"

  • Cruise Story
  • Doing Good for the Kindness of Strangers
  • Family Travel
  • Love Story
  • Men's Travel
  • Travel & Food
  • Travel & Healing
  • Travel & Shopping
  • Young Traveler

So, if you've got a story that would fit into one of those categories, now is a very good time to consider writing it down! Check out the Solas Awards website for more information about the contest and how to enter.

Good luck!

This competition seems to be open only for residents of the USA. Have I understood that correctly, does anyone know?

it does look that way, Anne-Sophie:

the Competition is open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 years or older at the time of entry.
