The time has come to reveal the longlist for our New Travel Writer of the Year competition! The standard has been really high this year, and the judging panel had a tough time coming up with this list of 16 entries. You can read some thoughts from Janice Booth, preliminary judge and Bradt author, here

Entries are judged anonymously throughout, so the longlist below appears with no names, only the titles of entries. The final judging session will take place in a little under a fortnight's time. During this session the judges will settle on a shortlist of three entrants, who will be invited to a special awards dinner in London in early February, at which the winner will be announced.

Congratulations to everyone who has made the longlist!
