Spread the love

The world is indeed a beautiful place and during February, we are inviting you to show us just how amazing your world is. February writing contest will visit some of the most exotic spots on planet Earth, guided by April Pad writers.  Share your favorite beach, river, mountain, valley, cave, lake, and your special place as we promote the theme: Beautiful World.

This month, April Pad wants you to go beyond tourism and find beauty in your world. Paint the green lush, the mountain dew, or the foaming seiche with words.  We want to find heritage sites, the ‘Gravity Hills’ that are worth exploring,  or the ‘Lovers Leap’ of real life

Writing Contest Theme: Beautiful World

The world is a large place with over 193 recognized countries located on seven continents, three oceans, and uncountable seas. Our world is full of beautiful places, creatures, and elements that fill our hearts with their wonders. Maybe it’s a huge forest where animals and plants thrive unmolested in their natural habitat, an extremely high mountain that seems to touch the sky.

Send us your train rides, your unforgettable campfire, or just the pond in the woods – tell us about them and earn extra money.

There is so much to write about these places and their history, the people they touched,  -their impact on culture, lifestyle, fashion, technology, etc. Writers can find unlimited resources online that will help them craft valuable pieces. These will be added to February’s insight into the world we call home.

In addition, there are no limitations on the type of article you may write. However, the content must be factual.  The article must bring the reader to April Pad on a quest for knowledge. 

Remember, the world will be watching and you will become their guide. Show them through the best photos. Engage your audience with the best stories. Write and win.

Choosing Your Topics

April Pad has an in-depth guide on how to choose a topic for your article. All topics must begin with one of the three news words: How, Who, or What plus the unique theme-related idea.
