Travel site offers SF-themed contest 

Tourists and visitors who fancy themselves writers have a chance to win one of 10 trips to visit our fine city, through a contest sponsored in part by the San Francisco Conventions and Visitors Bureau.

The contest, hosted by travel Web site Trazzler, challenges participants to write very short essays of no more than 160 words about any one of five themes: Foodie Temples, Love in The City, LGBT Icons, Neighborhood Spots, and Only in SF.

The first four themes can be about a visit to any urban area, but the last one must be about San Francisco.

The essays must be submitted by the end of February and will be posted online for the month of March. Site visitors can vote to “save” some of the essays – those that garner the most votes will win a People’s Choice Prize, including two round-trip tickets to San Francisco, five nights in a Joie de Vivre hotel, and $700 in spending money. A panel of judges will also award one Editors’ Choice Prize per category, with slightly reduced benefits.

The contest has caught the eye of Mayor Gavin Newsom, who today posted link to the contest on his Twitter account.
