Wyndham Opens Contest for Travel Writers

Wyndham Worldwide is offering a great opportunity that I have to pass along. Women on Their Way, the Wyndham program dedicated to female travelers, is looking to send ten globetrotters on vacations for “free” (aka using Wyndham Rewards loyalty points) in exchange for travel blogs and columns that will be posted on the female-friendly web site.

Now open for entries, The Local Nation Contest encourages all travelers to submit an essay of 350 words or less, plus a photo or video on why they should be selected to win vacations from Women on Their Way. All entries will be posted on http://www.WomenonTheirWay.com with a social media component that enables participants to ‘share their submission’ through Facebook, Twitter and e-mail. A voting period will begin on January 4, 2011, allowing the public to award a ‘thumbs up’ vote to their favorite submission.

The top ten entries, as decided by a combination of Women on Their Way Judges’ scores and the results of online voting, will then be named to the Sounding Board. All winners will be announced by February 14, 2011 and posted on the Women on Their Way website and Facebook page.

The ten Sounding Board members will receive 200,000 Wyndham Rewards points to be used to take a minimum of two vacations, a Flip SlideHD video camera to capture memorable moments, a McKenna Travel Folio by Pottery Barn, the opportunity to be a featured blogger on the WomenOnTheirWay.com Local Nation Sounding Board, and two American Express Gift Cards with a card value of $400 USD each, to be used for food and fun on their vacations. Each of the ten prize packages is valued at a total of $1,912 USD.

The Local Nation features blog entries, pictures and fun videos of the contest winners and their vacations at various hotels, rentals and/or timeshare properties within the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands. To join the conversation with “local” experts in the Women on Their Way community, become a fan of the Women on Their Way by Wyndham Worldwide’s Facebook page and start talking today.
