The Prize

The winner will see their piece published in the magazine and on natgeotraveller.co.uk

Plus they’ll enjoy a nine-day Arctic expedition to Spitsbergen, courtesy of Quark Expeditions, worth £7,000!

The winner will embark on a voyage aboard Quark Expeditions’ ice-strengthened ship and travel to the Arctic with the best expedition team in the polar regions. This exciting trip travels around the incredible island of Spitsbergen, offering breathtaking landscapes — from sheer-sided fjords to polar desert, individual glaciers to infinite sheet ice. Each day brings a new highlight in a land where there are more polar bears than people. This is the Arctic of Viking lore and legend — a world of icy fjords, fiery volcanoes and glittering, ice-bound seas. Here you’ll encounter the majestic ice bear, the colossal walrus, seabirds in their towering cliff-side rookeries, and wild flower-dotted tundra.

Experiencing the beauty of the Arctic is a trip that any budding travel writer must have on their bucket list.
