Blog Your Way to Antarctica from February 20 to March 3, 2010
One blogger and a friend will participate for free in a USD$20,000 Antarctic Cruise.
[06.09 - NORWALK, CT] Quark Expeditions, the world leader in polar adventures, has launched a competition that will entitle one fearless adventurer and a companion to travel to Antarctica at no cost. To enter, a competitor must post one entry of no more than 300 words that captures the imagination of blog readers around the world.
The competition is open to anyone 21 years of age or over as of June 19, 2009. According to Quark Expeditions' Vice President of Marketing, Francesco Contini, "Voters will be looking for entries that demonstrate creativity and clearly explain why the competitor should become the Quark Blogger." Contini continued, "The entrant must be capable of communicating the excitement of an Antarctic adventure."
The USD$20,000 expedition includes return airfare for two from the successful competitor's closest international gateway; 1 night of hotel accommodation in Ushuaia, Argentina with breakfast; a Main Deck Twin Cabin aboard Lyubov Orlova for 11 nights, including all shipboard meals; and all excursions in the Antarctic Peninsula as described in the daily program.
In an unusual move designed to keep the competition interesting over time, voters will be allowed to change their vote throughout the competition. Only one vote is permitted at one time, but once the voter is registered, he or she may change the vote for any reason.
To enter or vote visit Blog Your Way to Antarctica. Competition closes September 30, 2009 at noon eastern daylight time.
