Contributor Guidelines

International Circuit is rapidly becoming one of the largest travel sites on the web. However, we need contributors to help us get there! We are devoted to providing informative travel guides and unbiased reviews for top vacation destinations across the globe.

International Circuit debuted as an online travel publication in January 2004. We are constantly updating and adding to our travel guides. We are currently seeking contributor submissions for numerous locations. U.S locations are also being considered.

Style and Tone

Our readers should be able to experience a destination directly from the contributor’s words. Writings should be lively, interesting, and provide real insight.
