The standard of writing in this weekly competition from the Daily Telegraph is astonishing. In under 500 words you must describe a holiday experience which will catch the attention of the newspaper’s travel team. There’s a £200 prize every week in the currency of your choice and at the end of the year a chance to win the grand prize of £1,000. Wednesday is the deadline of this rolling competition. But if you miss it, don’t worry, your submission may well be considered for the following issue. That’s what happened to me on three occasions. Don’t give up! Email your entry, of no more than 500 words, in the body of your email: firstname.lastname@example.org If you add ANY ATTACHMENTS, your email will be trashed.
