Simonseeks announces competition winners

by simon.nixon

Simonseeks has enjoyed an overwhelming interest from writers which has helped us to build our content quickly and publish guides on an extensive range of destinations. To thank our writers for the obvious time and expertise they have given, and to encourage new writers to contribute, Simonseeks recently announced £20,000 in travel writing prizes. Take a look at my previous blog.

We have now chosen this month’s winners and will continue to offer cash prizes, totalling £5,000 per month, to writers between now and the end of December. All guides submitted to the site will qualify for entry.

Congratulations to this month’s winning writers! Please see a list of our winners (in no particular order) below. Click on their profile picture or guide title to read their guides and be inspired.
