Write, shoot for Budget Travel’s 10th anniversary issue

Want your photo or story to be featured in a national travel magazine? How often do you get that chance? In the case of Budget Travel, once every 10 years.

It’s the 10th anniversary of the “Vacations for Real People” magazine, and they’re celebrating—letting the readers have free rein over the June 2008 issue. That means they need your help with everything from the cover photo to critiquing guidebooks to buying local finds on their dime (or $100). If you’re keen on travel writing, pitch them an idea for a story—they’ll be choosing four.

“It can be anywhere in the world as long as the idea behind the trip is unique. Include some background on what makes the destination special,…why you think other people would care, and why you’re the person to write it.”

Submissions are due December 31, 2007.

If you apply too late, you can always submit story ideas for other issues. For more information, check out Budget Travel’s writer’s guidelines and calendar.

Founded by Frommer’s in spring 1998, Budget Travel was acquired by Newsweek in 1999 and now reaches a circulation of 600,000. BudgetTravel.com serves about 1.8 million page views per month.
