Create Your Travelogue and Win a Grant of 500 Euros!

Deadline: 21 September 2015
Open to: students enrolled in a higher education institution
Prizes: a travel grant of EUR 500, the possibility of being published


The international student travelogue competition is organised by Université Blaise Pascal in partnership with Il Faut Aller Voir Association and Kartocéros Editions association. Create your travelogue (or travel diary) which must relate, through text and image, an experience of travel, a journey or an encounter with another culture. It draws upon the author’s sense of observation and creativity. The format is open but it must restitute a trip that has taken place. It may be a journey undertaken as an individual or as a group, for example a class trip or as a pair (an international student with a French student buddy, for example). The travelogue must be paper ‐ based – digital formats are not accepted  ‐  and can be written in the language of choice of the author.


The competition is open to students enrolled in a higher education institution in France or abroad. There are no restrictions of age or nationality.


A panel of judges will evaluate the travelogues and the winner(s) will be selected according to the following criteria: the quality of the production, its originality and presentation. The best travelogues will win:

  • A travel grant of EUR 500;
  • An opportunity to display your travelogue at the 16th Rendez-vous du Carnet de voyage festival at Clermont-Ferrand, France;
  • The possibility of being published.
