What if you could:

–travel around the world for free?

–get experience as a travel writer?

–express your creativity through videos, photos, blogs, and tweets?

You can! STA Travel is holding the 2011 World Traveler Internship. The two winners will hit 16 countries and serve as travel correspondents. The runners-up will get to spend a summer in Europe. A pretty sweet consolation prize. The homepage has a slideshow of all the destinations where the winners will be sent on assignment.

Now that we live in an age of social media, applicants will get instant feedback. Aspiring travel writers will have to create a profile and submit a 1-minute video application. As more people view their profiles, the applicants will gather fans and comments. This makes things a lot more transparent, compared to most contests where you don’t know who’s gaining the most momentum.

You can check out the competitors on the applicants page. A common theme is emerging. Many of the videos have trip photos set to music as a slideshow. Might be good to switch things up for your application, to boost your chances. Do it soon, the contest goes from Jan. 25 to Feb. 25, 2011.
