Travel Weekly teams up with Quark Expeditions for ‘Ultimate Staycation Competition’

With the inside of our homes looking more familiar than ever, and holiday ideas keeping us travel dreaming more than ever before, why not bring our bucket lists to life with Quark Expeditions and Travel Weekly’s ‘Ultimate Staycation Competition’?

The team at Quark simply can’t choose where they’ll travel to first, so they’re looking to the travel industry for answers.

Show us where you’d rather be by turning a room in your home into that dream travel destination. It could be your living room, kitchen, bedroom, or even the cupboard under the stairs.

This competition is open to all travel industry professionals, and we’d love to see the whole family get involved (yes, even the dog).

The competition runs for the next four weeks, with final entries to be submitted no later than 6pm (AEST) on Friday 25 September 2020.

One shout out per week wins a ‘stayhome’ gift pack, and at the end of the competition, Quark and Travel Weekly will create a shortlist of our three favourite entries. Two of them will win a $50 EFTPOS gift card, and the overall winner will take home a $200 EFTPOS gift card.

Stayhome gift pack winners will be selected and shouted out on Travel Weekly each Friday while entries are open in September. The top three overall gift card winners will be announced on Travel Weekly on Wednesday 30 September.

To enter, upload your image or video to Facebook/Instagram/Twitter using the hashtags #UltimateStaycation and #QuarkAUagents.

Then, jump onto the competition website to register your details and select the image or video you want to submit.

You can enter multiple times, with entries limited to one per entrant per day.

To help give you an idea of what we’re looking for, check out the clever video below:

 

 

So, what are you waiting for? Get cracking on your entry and let your creative spirit run free!
