Southwest Airlines Wants to Fly You Around The World For Free
Southwest Airline is looking for "storytellers" and "influencers" to travel around the world taking photos and telling stories. Now's your chance to live that perfect world traveler lifestyle you always knew you deserved. All you have to do is apply.
Insider detailed just how it works -
Here's how it works. In order to apply, you must be over 21 and have at least 2,500 Instagram followers. If you happen to tick off both those boxes, follow @southwestair on Instagram. Then, pick out your very best travel photo to post and caption with something that "tells a compelling travel story," according to the Southwest statement. Be sure to tag @southwestair and post the hashtags #SouthwestStorytellers and #Contest to your post.
Influencers have until Feb. 24 to apply. Then, the airline will select 100 photos and invite posters to fill out a survey about their social media influencer background and why they are right for Southwest.
If you make it to the final round, you'll be one of 10 people to post a new photo based on a brief given to you by the airline. This sounds complicated, but think of it as doing several rounds of interviews.
Insider described the prizes as -
First and second place winners will receive prizes of 12 and 6 Southwest flight e-passes, respectively. Two third-prize winners will each receive a $500 Southwest gift card. And five fourth-prize winners will each receive 10,000 Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards points, according to the Southwest website.
