[This Singapore skyline is one step closer...]
Our judging panel has spent the last three weeks pouring over all of the applications from our 2012 Travel Writing Scholarship. Each of you had taken us on a journey to another place to see, to understand, to taste, to know the world through your writing.
This year, we've decided to end the suspense early and announce to you the top applicants that have made our shortlist.
Congratulations to our shortlisted applicants - the winner will be announced on May 17th!
