My Destination, an online travel guide that provides users with all the information they need about any of 80 listed destinations around the world, is presenting the Biggest, Baddest Bucket List competition, for one lucky individual to go on a six-month, all-expenses-paid trip to six continents and any destinations of their choice.
To cap it all, there's a further US$50,000 (about R450,000) in prize money to be collected at the end of the trip.
Maropeng is listed among the suggested worldwide destinations, and has been chosen as one of only two Johannesburg destinations listed in the competition.
"The association with the global competition reinforces Maropeng's uniqueness and highlights it as a destination in Johannesburg," says Maropeng marketing and communications manager Lindsay Marshall.Gaining local and global exposure
The competition provides an opportunity for Maropeng to "gain local and global exposure", while generating awareness about humanity's beginnings within the Cradle of Humankind.
The winner of the competition will begin their travels in June 2013 and will end in December 2013. Exact dates will depend on flight availability. To make the most out of the trip, the winner will build an itinerary with the My Destination team to include no less than 25 countries from the list, and at least two locations per continent.
The adventure is truly all expenses paid, and includes travel, accommodation and activities along the way; plus spending money as well as the US$50,000 prize money.
To enter, submit one three-minute video, one travel tale and three photos. At Maropeng there are more than enough stories within the history of the Cradle to share with the locals and the world. With beautiful surroundings for photos and ample space for your video, your entry should all be covered.Extra prize
Maropeng is also throwing in another chance to win. In order to claim the local prize, Maropeng should be featured as the most popular entry and favoured destination in Johannesburg. If your video is selected as a finalist with Maropeng as your chosen location, you win an extra prize.
