The Solas Awards in travel writing: A call for entries

Traveler’s Tales, “publishers of stories, wit and wisdom from travelers around the world,” is sponsoring the Solas Awards — “an annual competition to honor excellence in travel writing.”

“We’re looking for the best stories about travel and the world—funny, illuminating, adventurous, uplifting, scary, inspiring, poignant—stories that reflect the unique alchemy that occurs when you enter unfamiliar territory and begin to see the world differently as a result.”

Submissions of at least 750 words or longer — along with a $20 entry fee — will be accepted through November 15, 2006. The official rules in full can be viewed on

Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three submissions overall, along with a chance at having your story published in The Best Travel Writing 2007.
