The winner will receive US$7,500 to finance the research and writing of a long-form article or book.



    The jury will consider the narrative quality and the journalistic depth of the projects.

    The organiser says, “Travel writing can enrich our understanding of the world in a unique way.

    “Having the potential to encompass so many different forms of writing, from autobiography to fiction, journalism to history, it allows authors to explore ideas and disciplines with a freedom that would not be possible within a more academic context.”

    The deadline for the application is December 30, 2022. Interested applicants can apply here.
