Writing Competition - The Eagle's Nest near Berchtesgaden, Bavaria

We are seeking aspiring or established travel writers to send us exciting, original travel writing – factual or fictional.

Although this website is aimed at Seniors (meaning anyone 55 years old or above) you most certainly don’t need to be a Senior yourself to submit an entry – far from it! Anyone 16 years old and above is invited to submit an entry.

Entries should be no more than a 1,000 words in length, but may be much less, and should be written in English.

Please read the full Writing Competition – Terms and Conditions before entering. The closing date for entries is midnight on Sunday, 1st June, 2014.

The winning entry will receive a FairFX Prepaid MasterCard® Currency Card loaded with £100.

The winner can choose between a Euro Card, a US Dollar Card or an Anywhere Card. More details about these cards and their usage can be found on the FairFX website.

The winning entry will also be published on this website. Other notable entries may be published on this website or on the FairFX Blog website.Fair FX logo
