If you’ve got an Instagram account, you could fly for free on Southwest Airlines as a winner of its Storyteller Contest.
The budget airline is looking for 10 “social influencers” to explore its destinations in the United States, Mexico, Caribbean and Central America while creating “compelling content that will inspire others to create their own travel stories.”
To enter, submit your best travel photo – with an engaging caption – on Instagram. Southwest will choose 100 semifinalists to complete a survey (sample question: “If Southwest powered your travel for the year, where would you go and what would you do?”). Ten finalists will be chosen based on survey results and then ranked by travel content they produce about their home city.
The finalists will receive prizes including Southwest e-passes valid for one-way travel, Southwest gift cards worth $500, and 10,000 Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards points.
The grand prizewinner will receive 24 Southwest e-passes, worth approximately $4,800.
You must be at least 21 and have an Instagram account with at least 2,500 followers to enter. Submissions are due by Feb. 24.
