The South Africa Youth Travel Confederation is offering a talented blogger the chance of ‘creating a once-in-a-lifetime diary of adventure and excitement.’  The trip will take the successful blogger from Cape Town to Johannesburg, going shark diving, kite surfing, surfing, on safari, and volunteering along the way. Find out more about the blogging competition here

Skilful travel photographers are also being encouraged to submit their work for another competition which could see their photography taking pride of place on the cover of TNT Magazine, and the prize of a high-end travel camera.

The travel show, sponsored by Flight Centre, London’s biggest free exhibition of its kind, takes place at Earls Court Exhibition Centre on March 3.
