There are ten days left for videographers and travel bloggers to ‘apply’ for Hipcamp’s best summer job experience.
Just in time for a summer when camping is poised to be the vacation of choice (and opportunity) for thousands of Canadians suffering from serious cabin fever, Hipcamp, the world’s largest provider of outdoor stays, is celebrating its Canadian launch by launching a coast-to-coast competition to award Canada’s Best Summer Job.
The successful candidate will spend 40 days this summer adventuring across Canada, camping and glamping at 20 of Hipcamp’s most beautiful sites along the way. They’ll also receive a prize of $20,000 CAD, along with a stipend for food and travel expenses. Their job? To create blog or vlog content along the way. The winner will also become ‘Canadian famous’ through a series of local media interviews as they travel across the country.
“We wanted to launch in Canada in a big way,” said Hipcamp CEO Alyssa Ravasio. “We fell in love with the idea of offering one lucky Canadian the paid opportunity to adventure across the country and experience some of the best outdoor stays Canada has to offer.”
$20K, 20 camping/glamping sites, 40 days and 4,000 miles: Hipcamp has Canada’s Best Summer Job.
As COVID-19 lockdowns ease, Canadians are more excited than ever to get outside. Camping, glamping, and RV stays are simply the best vacation options this summer for Canadians who badly need a change of scenery, but want to recreate safely.
Any Canadian who has reached the legal age of majority in their province or territory of residence can apply with a 90-second or less video in the next ten days here: https://canadasbestsummerjob.hipcamp.com
Candidates will rally friends, family and community for votes through their own social media channels and creative outlets. Votes will be counted and displayed online in the contest’s entry page: https://canadasbestsummerjob.hipcamp.com
The top 6 entries (based on votes, creativity, and technical ability), will be announced as contest finalists on July 19, 2021. All finalists will be encouraged to further push for votes and appear in local media to encourage their hometowns to vote for their entry online before voting for finalists officially closes July 26, 2021.
One successful candidate will be announced as winner of Canada’s Best Summer Job on August 2, 2021
The successful candidate will start work on August 9, 2021, and spend the next 40 days blogging or vlogging about their experiences at 20 of Hipcamp’s best outdoor stays in Canada.
