Write a local travel story; win US$500. That doesn’t sound like a bad deal, does it? LeapLocal.org is running a  travel-writing competition  – with a ‘local travel’ edge and some great cash prizes. I’m looking forward to being on judging panel for this and a separate Leap Local competition where participants are being asked to nominate an outstanding local guide. I was on the panel for this last year too and it made for some interesting discussions about what people look for in a good guide. I’ll be sure to post some feedback after this year’s event. In the meantime, enter so I have some good stuff to read! (And be sure to check out the guidelines first.)

(Edit: I should have mentioned GranTourismo is also doing a travel blogging contest. It seems to be a good time for budding travel writers with an interest in local travel.)
