Heard of The Biggest, Baddest Bucket List?My Destination’s Biggest Baddest Bucket List launched on 28th January 2013. Since then, there has been an incredible buzz going around the global travel community, who are now talking about ‘the world’s biggest ever travel competition’.
The prize is an amazing all expenses paid trip around the world – Six Months – Six Continents! The winner will choose at least 25 destinations from the My Destination network, meeting the ‘local experts’ and being able to tick off loads of awesome activities from their own bucket list. They’ll be blogging as they go so that we can all follow their adventure! As if that’s not enough, when the winner arrives home they’ll receive $50,000… about £32,000!
To enter, you have to simply make a video about a destination of your choice – it can be your home town if you like, or maybe your favourite holiday destination? It just needs to be somewhere that you know well. Submit the video, along with a short blog and some photos, then spread the word and start getting votes!
It will take a little time and thought, but we hear that lots of excited people are already preparing their videos and blogs, so we expect the entries to start flowing in soon! Entrants have until 31st March 2013 to enter but get filming ASAP to give yourself plenty of time to get lots of votes. It's not all about votes though... 5 of the 'top 10' will instead be chosen by staff at My Destination HQ and Ben Southall - winner of 'The Best Job in the World'... make sure you get noticed with your super-star personality and reporting skills!
So, tell everyone who you know would LOVE this fantastic opportunity!
Isle of Wight CompetitionWhen My Destination Isle of Wight told the Isle of Wight Tourist Board Visit Isle of Wight and local ferry company Wightlink about The Biggest Baddest Bucket list, they were just as excited as us and have decided to get involved.
Why? Well just like us, they can see that this global competition could be a fantastic way to spread the word about our beautiful island. Imagine if the Isle of Wight could encourage lots of video entries about the Isle of Wight, which will be viewed and voted for by people all over the world? Even better, imagine if the Isle of Wight video gets to the top 10 or even wins?!
So, how is the Isle of Wight encouraging video entries about the island?
This Isle of Wight is running its own mini competition, with an additional local prize for all video entries about the Isle of Wight. The Isle of Wight competition is designed to encourage as many Isle of Wight video entries as possible!
(However, the ‘mini competition’ is completely separate from The Biggest Baddest Bucket List and will therefore in no way influence the outcome of the global competition.)
