Conditions

  • You can only enter if you are a native speaker of the following languages: Español, English, Français, Italiano, Português, Polski, Türkçe, Deutsch, Nederlands. When we say native, we are referring to your ability to speak the language, not whether you are actually from the aforementioned countries. If, for example, you’re from Poland and speak English just as good as anyone from England itself, then you can write in English. It’s only like this as we want you to create high quality content so it’s important to have a native command of the language you want to write in. In previous competitions people have submitted articles that were illegible, something we want to avoid this time around. We are working towards being able to open up future competitions to more languages, so that more people can participate.
  • You cannot publish the same content in different languages. Our team will translate the best contents.
  • Important: use subheadings, headings, words in bold and lists in order to make sure that your text is easy to follow. Avoid spelling and grammar mistakes. Remember to follow our style guide.
  • Attention! You should write entirely original texts. They cannot appear on any other website, including your personal blogs. We verify all published content in order to make sure that it has not been copied from another source, so play fair!
  • You can only write about places you have visited yourself. Don’t just go to Wikipedia, read about a place and then modify the text to use it as your own. Describe the places in your own words, expressing your own opinion and write about your personal experiences.
  • You can only use your own photos or free copyright pictures (which can be downloaded from from websites such as Pixabay, Freeimages, Unsplash, etc.)

How do you gain points?

You can see the ranking in the column on the right hand side. The points are awarded automatically in the following way:

  • 1 point for every 10 characters written.
  • 3 points for every person that reads your content (one visit per person for each post). Share your posts on Facebook, Twitter, Whats App, email them to your friends etc.
  • 50 extra points (max) for adding at least 4 photos.

There is a daily limit of 5,000 points that you can receive for the characters you have written. That's why, it is best to write every day! Don't leave it to the last minute!

Points can also be awarded for the quality of the written content, so remember to follow our style guide. At the end of the competition we will give extra points to the finalists who followed our style guide. All points gathered by the finalists will be added up and 25% of this total will be distributed among them as extra points, based on how well they have written.

Reasons for disqualification:

We revise all of the published content and whoever has not followed our rules will be disqualified. Play fair.

You can get disqualified if:

  • You are copying texts directly from other pages.
  • You are writing long articles with little information just to get more points. Long entries with no useful information will not be taken into account.
  • You are copying and editing opinions about places in order to make them seem like your own. We call this ‘Copy and Edit’ and it can be easily spotted as the content reads like an encyclopaedia: loads of dates, names, and facts and not many of your own opinions or personal experiences which we are looking for.
  • You are producing poor quality texts as you are not writing in your native language.
  • You are using photos that are copyrighted.
  • You are writing about places you haven’t actually been to. We’re looking for real experiences!

In terms of trying to gain points for visits, you can also be disqualified:

  • If we find out you are using proxys or any other programme to simulate views.
  • If we detect short visits, suggesting the content has been viewed for the sole purpose of increasing views. Visits must last at least 1 minute.
  • If you are using any other illegitimate way in order to increase your visits.

Any doubts?

Agata will help you with any questions you may have: agata@erasmusu.com

Good luck to everyone and let the best ones win!
