Sure lockdowns are the pits but the moment the borders open, we’re jumping on a plane and getting ourselves a sweet serve of wanderlust. If, like us, you have travel high on your agenda then you’ll want to listen up, because we’ve sussed out a way you can actually get paid to tick things off your bucket list.

Travel start up Travis, has launched the 'Travel Creator Fund' to support emerging content creators telling good travel stories, taking the next step in their passion and side hustle. 

There are 10 cash prizes up for grabs, with the potential for winners to earn ongoing coin for the content they create and community they build. And even better, a chosen few will score the opportunity to star in Travis’ upcoming campaigns, and collaborate with partner brands. If you’ve ever dreamed of becoming a travel influencer or content creator, now is your chance to make it reality. 

So how does it work? Simply head here and create your Travis account. Then post your best travel story to Travis and tell them how you’re taking the next step in your creator journey. You’ll score brownie points if you share your entry on Instagram or TikTok with the hashtag, #traviscreators. 

Applicants can be photographers, writers, content creators or bloggers, you just need to share one common goal—to create wanderlust content that inspires people to travel. The only fine print is that you need to have an active Instagram account of at least 1000 followers.

Applications are open from Monday 30 August, to Sunday 26 September 2021 and will be judged by award-winning travel photographer Jarrad Seng and, Alec Ploof, head of creators and partnerships at Moment.
