Guidelines, terms, conditions and benefits for journalists and photographs!

2005-01-21
We would like to get more travel-related exciting stories, articles and wonderful photos from around the world.

Here we present our guidelines for writing, terms and conditions for submissions, benefits for submitting, and benefits for they who contribute to our website.
The background for foundation of Travel Explorations is:

- Be a counterpart to all "reproduced information" covered in global media about well-known cities as London, Barcelona, Paris etc, and instead make people understand that our world is bigger than this.

Our aim is therefore to visualize untouched and unknown places for for unique adventures. 

- Be a counterpart to all the negative cover in global media about places and incidents around the world

Of course travelling could be risky. In general we would like travellers to think positive about the places around the world, but they also need to consider negative aspects of their tours. In most cases we believe that travellers will find places enjoyable and people nice.

Guidelines for writing
Travel Explorations` target group are experienced backpackers and adventure travellers. We like to catch their "heart and soul" in travelling. How can you as a traveller write an article which is interesting for our website and readers?

Some general questions you might ask yourself when writing an article for us:

  • What are related to travelling? Our main travel-related themes are destinations with ancient sites, unique and unspoilt places, exotic tribes, wildlife and nature, mysteries, extreme sport, explorers and adventurers, explorations and discoveries, trends and travel advise (safety, equipment etc).
  • Why did you go there?
  • What was the highlight? What was your most interesting experience? We like travel tales mainly based on own experiences filled with strong passion including elements as inspiring, enjoyable, pioneering, exciting, interesting and useful
  • In what way did you and your travel team (group) prove yourself outstanding? It could be a challenging tour consisting elements of unique adventures (courage, determination and performance), pioneering, explorations (new insight) and discoveries
  • What makes this place/adventure unique?
  • How have cultural elements as nature, arts, history or religion shaped this society?
  • Why should other people go there?

Make your story personal and lively. Use only general information as background information for putting your story in a frame.

Additional guidelines are: 

  • Headings and ingresses: should draw attention, be clear and interesting
  • End of the articles: should contain an conclusion, encouragement or engaging question related to the heading and ingress
  • Language: British English
  • Most travel tales and feature articles are between 1,000 and 1,500 words. Longer articles might be split into multiple parts.
  • Submission of articles is preferred accompanied by photographs, but not it's not a absolute claim
