Air New Zealand recently launched a video contest to find the “Coldest Canadian” that they will reward with an all expenses paid trip to New Zealand (valid for up to a year from the end of the contest in March 2011).
So far, the only entry from Vancouver is from columnist and blogger Sean Horlor — I’m thinking his entry will look drastically different than those from back East.
There’s still plenty of time to put together your video before the deadline February 26, 2011. Register for an account on the Air New Zealand site to submit your video then promote your page. Videos are going up every day so the sooner you enter, the sooner you can begin getting votes. If you’re not interested in entering, you can still check the website for the latest videos and vote for your favourites.
To promote the video contest, I asked Air New Zealand if they could put together a prize pack for my readers. This includes a slick Air New Zealand travel bag and hat, the complete Lord of the Rings trilogy on Blu-Ray, and a bag full of branded boiled lollies.
I’ll run this as a Twitter-only contest so simply paste the following on Twitter to enter:
I will draw one winner from all Twitter entries at 12:00pm on February 22, 2011.
Update The winner is @ms_tfny, congratulations!
