We're excited to present our four scholarship winners!
More than 3,700 of you entered our first ever Content Creator Scholarship, displaying an extraordinary depth of talent and creativity. Our judges could only pick four winners and after much deliberation we're excited to introduce them to you.
Our winning creators will kick-start their careers with coaching from Nomadasaurus, prizes from Sony, RØDE and Bright Trip and funding to travel on assignment for World Nomads.
We're excited to see what Colin and Meg, Samantha, Tony and Tuli create during their scholarship experience and cannot wait to share it with you over the coming months.
Traveling with children can be hard work, but Colin and Meg are determined their travels with two young daughters will be a positive experience for them all. Lovers of storytelling, the family want to take their audience along for the ride and hope to inspire others to travel with children and find the joy in respecting difference along the way.
Fewer people have circumnavigated the globe in a single-engine plane than have summitted Everest – and one of them is 21-year-old pilot Samantha. Currently, part way through a 14-month flying trip around the world with her family, Samantha is documenting their journey and raising funds for charity along the way, using skills that she will sharpen on the scholarship.
Acknowledging he’s a small fish in a big pond of travel content creators, Tony isn’t deterred from documenting his travels as he treads the road less travelled. His trips have taken him from Canada to Southeast Asia where he currently lives as a digital nomad. By creating content around his life and adventures, Tony hopes to inspire others to explore the world and follow their passions.
Tuli is on a mission to inspire young people from the developing world to experience the joy and benefits of travel. Her content focuses on budget and solo travel and she keeps it real by showing the ups and downs of exploring the world alone. Tuli hopes to inspire travelers from less fortunate backgrounds to overcome the obstacles in their way to make travel a reality. She hopes the scholarship will help her help others.
Congratulations to the following shortlisted applicants.
