1. Nonprofits and Open Places Content

    Starting today, all of our editorially selected and vetted content will be available free to nonprofits, public radio stations, parks, schools, tourism bureaus, publications, and other approved organizations. The idea is to create an open network of publication-quality information about places that can be used to promote any neighborhood, town, or region—or particular area of interest. Trazzler content can be plugged into iPhone apps, websites, guidebooks, slideshows, newspaper and magazine features, and tourism brochures. 

    Examples: 

    “Content – especially compelling photography – is essential to destination marketers,” said Gwynne Spann, Content Manager, Visit California. “We strive to provide the most interesting and engaging content in order to showcase the Golden State to potential visitors.  We are extremely pleased that Trazzler will be making their rich content, gathered from thousands of excellent writers and photographers, available to nonprofit organizations like Visit California.” 

    What makes Trazzler different from all of the other sites that collect information on places? It’s our editorial vision and the skill level of the writers and photographers. Every place you find on Trazzler is here because we think it is good and every featured photo and article has been selected and vetted by an editor. Four years ago, Trazzler launched a radically different kind of publishing platform where writers and photographers could interact directly with editors. Now we’re opening up the results of this experiment to organizations that do good.

    Every week, Trazzler runs photo and writing contests on fun (and even thought-provoking) themes. You can win money, trips, and prizes just for exploring new places and sharing the things you love to do. Your contributions will be shared with world-class nonprofits, and you’ll always get a byline on your writing and photography.

    Writers and photographers can participate by submitting on the pool of places our editors recommend around the world, or by suggesting a new place.
