We want to make your euro-dreams come true. So back in February wiwibloggs and our app developers at BeePost teamed up to give one of our lucky readers (and a friend of his or her choosing) the chance to win a trip to Kyiv. That’s right. We’ve saved up our spare change and are giving away a trip for two to the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Ukraine. That’s round-trip airfare, that’s two nights in a hotel and tickets to the Eurovision grand final jury final on May 12.
HOW DO I WIN THE TICKETS TO EUROVISION 2017?
Then click on the WIN STUFF section. Using the video comments feature, record yourself explaining why YOU deserve to go to Eurovision. Win us over with your humour, make us cry with your moving story, or just keep it real and tell us why you slay in a way others don’t. Anything goes! (But keep it clean — we’ll be deleting any and all inappropriate videos).
Last last week we pulled out a number of the videos and we’ve now compiled them in to the video reel above. Don’t worry: If you’re not included in this, it won’t hurt your chances of winning.
HOW IS THE WINNER PICKED?
We’ll close the contest on 11 April 2017 at 00:01 GMT (so really late on April 10). wiwibloggs will shortlist up to 10 candidates based upon the number of “honey drops” they receive from fellow users and reviews from our in-house panel of editors.
The videos from shortlisted candidates will then be presented to an outside panel of Eurovision celebrities and those who work behind-the-scenes on the event. We are keeping their identities secret for now, as we don’t want you to influence them on social media.
WHAT’S THE CATCH?
There is no catch, but there are some rules. Unfortunately you must be 18 years or older to enter.
In addition to the two Eurovision tickets and the two-night hotel stay, the prize covers flights from Europe and other participating nations outside of Europe (so, for instance, Israel). Unfortunately we cannot cover flights from the participating nation of Australia, or from other far-flung destinations like the United States, Mexico and South Africa. I gotta pay my mortgage, y’all!
However, if you’re from outside of Europe and can get yourself to Europe, we can fly you from a European city to the contest. Everyone — from anywhere in the world — can enter if they can get themselves to Europe.
But that’s enough blabbing from us. We can’t wait to watch your videos and hear your stories. We’ve already seen a few and they’re moving, hilar, sweet and tender. We love you all.
