Matador Travel Writing Contest Winner Announced! is the only website I've found that pays writers and photographers of all levels of experience for quality travel articles. Last month I blogged about Matador's first travel writing contest, which offered a $500 cash prize. The Editors received about 80 submissions and the winner was announced yesterday, along with two honorable mentions.

Unfortunately, the entry Ryan and I submitted didn't make it to the podium, but the good news is that the winning article and runners-up are truly great reads.

Click here for the winning entry, "Huayhash: A Convergence of Change and Resilience.

And while I'm a bit bummed to miss out on the trophies and champagne this time around, there will be more Matador contests soon, and I'm excited for my first magazine feature to hit bookstore shelves sometime next month. Stay tuned!

And by the way - for those who miss my Hokkaido stories I've got some great news. Scott Lothes is writing again from Muroran, Hokkaido. Check out his blog at
