Hostel company seeking 2010 Winter Olympics video blogger

Filed as News on November 9, 2009 1:37 pm

We’ve seen a fair number of blogging competitions over the past couple of years, where one lucky entrant gets an all-expenses-paid trip somewhere to blog about an event or location.

The latest one to catch my eye is being run by Hosteling International Canada.

They’re looking for a video blogger to report from Vancouver during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games (12-28 February 2010).

To be in with a chance of winning, bloggers need to submit a one-minute video explaining why they would be the best person for the job.

The prize? A return airfare from home country to Vancouver, five nights accommodation in a Vancouver Central hostel, a digital camera and 500 Canadian dollars spending money, plus a five day break in Banff.

The “hard work” involves posting short video reports each day on the BackPackerBuzz.ca web site. Presumably, as reports are happening from the streets and not from within the Olympic venues and village, there’ll be no problems with media rights from the IOC.

Competition entries must be received by 21st November.
