You need to be at least 18 or the age of majority in your country (whichever is higher) at the time of the competition entry deadline (19 May 2021) in order to enter. Sorry, we can't make any exceptions to this rule.
Unfortunately, due to legal restrictions in each country, this competition is not open to residents of Italy, Quebec, Crimea, Iran, Syria, North Korea and Sudan. While we would have loved to include them, it's out of our hands. The individual laws of each country restrict us from running this competition in each jurisdiction. If you are a resident of one of these excluded countries and also a resident of a country not on this list then you can still enter.
Sorry, employees of World Nomads, OneSeed Expeditions, Hostelworld, Light My Fire and Tomorrow's Air and their subsidiaries and affiliated companies, and members of their immediate families or households, are ineligible to enter this competition.
The winner and 20 runners-up will be chosen based on their creativity by having the most interesting, unique, original and well-written answer as chosen by a panel of judges at World Nomads and Hostelworld. You can find the weightings in the terms and conditions page under point 7. 'Selection and Notification of Winners'.
World Nomads will introduce you to our partners at OneSeed Expeditions, Hostelworld, Light My Fire and Tomorrow's Air via email and you will need to organize the receipt of your prize directly with them.
The spending money will go towards any expenses on your trip that are not outlined in the prizes listed above. This will include, but is not limited to: food, extra activities, travel insurance and any accommodation costs not included in the tour prize.
No, all entries must be submitted using our form. If you're having trouble submitting your entry, please try using a different internet browser or device. If your entry gets lost in cyberspace or doesn’t arrive for any other reason, that’s not World Nomads' fault.
