The Culture Trip aims to showcase the world’s best art and culture by covering 4 broad domains for each country: art, literature, film and music. Articles can range from overview pieces on the literary giants of a given country, to features on its contemporary artists, groundbreaking film directors or iconic musicians. This month’s competition focuses on 'Icons of Culture' . The deadline for our January competition is 31 January 2013.
The style and tone of your article(s) should be scholarly and critical whilst avoiding being too dry and theoretical. They can range from 750 to 1500 words in length. When possible, they should include one or more video clips (YouTube / Vimeo), relevant to the topic. We also like to add some actual books and films relating to the article, so make a few suggestions if you can.
For more background and guidance, or if you do wish to write but not to enter the competition, please have a look at the 'Write Articles' section of our website.
Please do get in touch with one of our Editors at email@example.com

The Culture Trip Team
Showcase your photographs or videos in our newest monthly competition. The winning entrant receives a free Travel Bag of books or films and will be featured and credited on our website, published in our newsletter and promoted via our social media channels.
The Culture Trip very carefully chose the background pictures for each country’s section, as it does determine the general feel of the site. We always tried to choose beautiful background pictures less commonly associated with a given country and had a strong preference for cityscapes. We are now looking for more photographs and videos that reveal or highlight the architectural style(s) of cities from around the world. We also like artistic takes on conventional travel footage and photography, in particular of urban settings.
Photos can be submitted in JPEG or PNG format, whilst videos must be uploaded onto YouTube or Vimeo. They will be presented on the site in our Gallery format.
