All travellers have stories to tell
so what's yours?
The 3rd TAT Newsroom Blogger Thailand competition comprises two components: a blog and a photo.
Interested bloggers are invited to submit ‘a blog’ of between 350-500 words accompanied by one photo or a VDO to illustrate the story, or ‘a photo’ which should be saved in JPEG format and should have a resolution of 300 dpi. The photo entry should not be larger than 2MB with a width of not more than 2,500 pixels.
The 3rd TAT Newsroom Blogger Thailand competition is eligible for bloggers who must have a regularly-updated presence on social media channels and a substantial number of regular followers (at least 10,000, or as deemed appropriate by the TAT Newsroom team). This can include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus, etc. or a personal blog that covers travel, food or culture topics. However, the photo entry is open for Instagramers only.
This year, six bloggers will again be selected by both a panel of judges and number of public votes. Successful bloggers will receive a return air ticket and an all-expenses-paid trip to experience the unique local way of life in Thailand.
