In 2014, STA Travel and Jack Wills teamed up to search for bright young people achieving extraordinary things. Our very own CEO John Constable helped judge the “Endurance” category, which considers sportsmen/women, adventurers, travellers, explorers, pilots and hitchhikers. The winners received £5000 towards their chosen project as well as mentoring opportunities and a photoshoot…because everyone likes to show off.
And this year? We’re ready to do it all again! Read on for the low-down on last year’s winners, some top tips from John himself, and all the details you need to enter in 2015.

Watch Ben’s director’s commentary below, read about his amazing experiences, and discover why you should probably hop over there yourself (spoiler alert – because it’s beautiful).

In February 2013 Karl Watson and James Walsh quit their jobs and headed off on a 9 month, 20 country, epic adventure around the world! Luckily for us they took a camera with them and their awesome video is now featured on our YouTube channel.
