Grantourismo to run monthly travel writing competitions...

Sounds like this might the first of many such travel blogging competitions offered by the newly created Grantourismo travel blog. Grantourismo is the brainchild of travel writers Lara Dunston and Terence Carter who are being sponsored by HomeAway Holiday Rentals to do a 'contemporary Grand Tour' around Europe.

The theme for this first travel blogging competition is The ’Hood.

All you need to do is write a 500 word word blog post that motivates people to:

-explore more authentic and enriching ways to travel
-get beneath sthe skin of a place when they travel
-learn to live like locals
-travel more slowly and more sustainably, and/or
-give something back to the places they visit.

Prizes are:

FIRST PRIZE A stay at a HomeAway Holiday-Rentals property of your choice anywhere in the world valued at UK£500 (US$750) and a Viator tour voucher worth £100/US$150

SECOND PRIZE A Context tour voucher worth US$100

THIRD PRIZE an annual subscription to AFAR magazine

PHOTOGRAPHY PRIZE* Olympus FE 4040 cameras worth UK£160/US$240

Deadline: 28 March

The Grantourismo is an excellent opportunity to prove the writing skills capabilities of the bloggers and have a chance to win exciting prizes and a chance to travel around the world.
Traveling is a fascination and fantasy to explore the world and meet new and different people and write about their culture and heritage and motivate others to see the world.
