China cannot be known from a hurried glance – it must be lived and explored firsthand.

No experience of China is the same. That's why That’s China is inviting all foreigners to share their unique experiences and take part in the 2018 ‘Fabulous Zhuhai’ Writing/Photography Campaign. This is your chance to get published – and paid!

The writing and photographing campaign is sponsored by China Intercontinental Press and the Zhuhai Press Group, and is jointly organized by the That's Magazine group and ciccphoto.com

The competition is now open for submissions. Two winners will be selected to join the That's China editorial team as a guest writer/photographer for the chance to discover one of the top marine tourism destinations in China... totally free of charge!

That's China is always on the lookout for new voices and fresh perspectives. If you have an anecdote you'd love to tell or think that China brings out the photographer in you, get in touch with the organizers at kuaipai2017@163.com to discuss your next published piece.

All good stories deserve to be told. All good pictures deserve to be shared. Now you’re just one click away from becoming the next Peter Hessler.

About Zhuhai

Endowed with an admirable ecology, Zhuhai is a lesser-known crown jewel of southern China’s bustling marine tourism scene. Located in the south of GuangdongpProvince, it is an ideal place not only for sightseeing but for trying out the latest marine leisure trends — and, for the more gastronomical adventurers, sampling the quintessence of Cantonese culinary arts.
