Southwest Will Fly You Around the World Free to Take Photos and Tell Stories


If you’re stuck in a dead-end job or, worse yet, were recently laid off, there’s no better time to start living your dream. Southwest Airlines is looking for “storytellers” and “influencers” to help create travel content, and it’s ready to handsomely reward the top candidates with free flights around the world.

The airline is seeking a well-traveled Instagram influencer to snap Instagram-worthy photos that tell a story, according to a release from the company. Interested influencers will “compete” to win 12 round-trip e-pass tickets from Southwest, valued at $4,800, per a report from USA Today.

Applicants must be over 21 years of age and have a minimum of 2,500 Instagram followers. If that sounds like you, you have to follow @southwestair on Instagram and pick you best travel photo. The image must be captioned with something that “tells a compelling story,” per the statement. Southwest Airlines must be tagged in the caption with the hashtags “#SouthwestStorytellers” and “#Contest.”

All applications have to be in by February 24, so ramp up your follower count and break out your best travelgrams. After applications are in, Southwest will select 100 photos and invite posters to fill out a survey about their background as social media influencer and why they’d be the best fit for the gig.
