Win the chance to become a sports writer from Europe's top venues

Do you fancy travelling around Europe over four weekends all expenses paid, watching top-class sport, interviewing the players, meeting the fans and the writing about it all for The Independent?

In association with bwin, Europe's biggest sports betting and gaming site (you'll know them from the front of the Real Madrid shirt), we want you to go to some of the best sporting venues in Europe - and then write about them for The Independent.

All we want you to do is prove that you've got what it takes to join some of the best sports writers in the UK by penning your own sports report. Just write us a piece of around 400 words on any sporting event this summer and send it to us by email by click here (be sure to write bwin competition in the subject line).

We'll shortlist the best six and publish them and our expert judges on the sports desk will then select a winner who will have the best launch into sports journalism they could wish for.

Our winner will get to spend four very special weekends at sporting events across Europe writing for us. You'll win the chance to take in a MotoGP and matches at the Bernabeu and San Siro stadiums, home to two of the biggest clubs in the world, sponsored AC Milan and Real Madrid's 'galacticos'.

Before and after each trip you will be blogging for The Independent about your experiences, capturing the passion and excitement of the events, the fans and the cities you visit, and you'll write up a match report for the website and for consideration for the paper.

You must be available to travel from over the course of four separate weekends during September and October and have your passport at the ready.

So, if sports journalism is the stuff of your dreams, click here. (Be sure to write bwin competition in the subject line).

The competition will close at midday, 21 September. We'll announce the winner shortly afterwards, and they'll be off to Estoril, Portugal on 4 October for the MotoGP...
