Flight Centre is teaming up with Air Canada, Intrepid Travel, Roots Canada and Henry’s to bring to the public the “Best Travel Job Ever” contest. The retail travel agency is searching for people that are passionate about travel and want to spend the summer video blogging their experience from an exotic destination.
Interested participants are asked to submit a 2-4 minute video to http://besttraveljobever.com explaining why he or she would be the ideal candidate to travel and video blog on behalf of the company. The public is invited to vote on its favourite entries and select the Top 25 submissions. Celebrity judges including Josie Dye (102.1 The Edge & CosmoTV), Suzanne Christie (Open Jaw Network & Takeoffeh.com) and Scott Stratten (@unmarketing on Twitter and Un-Marketing.com) will then choose the 6 semi-finalists who will win trips, clothing and camera gear. While on their trips, the semi-finalists will video blog their adventures from locations around the world in May and June. The resulting video blogs will be voted on by the public to pick the fan favourite while the judges will pick the top 2 grand prize winners. The grand prize winners will get to take another trip in August as well as earn $2,000 cash, more clothing, and upgraded camera gear.
“We are incredibly excited about the potential for this contest. Travellers love to talk about their adventures and it will provide a fantastic opportunity for anyone who’s ever dreamed of getting paid to do something they love,” said Gregg Tilston, Flight Centre’s Social Media Manager. He added, “We believe BestTravelJobEver.com is a great combination of social media and travel, and we expect some very creative entries over the next several weeks.”
