In May 2015, we launched our first annual Young Travel Writers Competition and were thrilled to receive bucketfuls of responses.

The winners in each category enjoyed wonderful trips to Wales and commissions from Family Traveller to write travel articles which were published in Family Traveller magazine. Two runners-up in each category received five beautiful, Laurence King books.

We know you’ll enjoy reading the entries as much as we did, so we’ve published them all right here. Happy reading – and if your little ones are inspired to try their hands at travel writing, they can enter the 2016 Young Travel Writers Competition here, and maybe even win a family trip to Ibiza!
