If you've tied the knot but were never able to go on a honeymoon, or you're getting married but still haven't planned one yet, then you can enter to win one of two Grand Prizes. Airbnb is teaming up with Honeyfund.com to send two lucky couples on a once-in-a-lifetime dream honeymoon. We think that after months of perfecting the one-of-a-kind details that go into your wedding, the same uniqueness should carry through to your honeymoon destination. Since Airbnb has listings in over 8,000 cities and 140 countries, we have something for everyone. Win an escapade to the Caribbean islands and walk the white sand beaches of Anguilla. Or get ready for romance under the Tuscan sun, nestled in a rustic villa tucked away in the Italian hillside...
Couples, get your game faces on and tell us why you’re the power couple to beat!
Before entering, please be sure you are available to honeymoon from September 8, 2011 through the September 15, 2011. These dates are non-negotiable.
HOW TO ENTER:
1. Create a username and password by clicking the "Enter Now" button at top of the home page. Once you've registered, you'll receive an email verifying your registration. Go ahead and click on the link in the email to log in.
2. Submit a "Here's the Couple!" photo. Upload the most adorable picture you two have together.
3. Write a catchy title. The more creative the better; this will increase your likelihood of capturing votes.
4. Please answer the following questions in 100 words or less:
a) Airbnb is all about connections, whether it be people, places, or neighborhoods. Tell us how you two made a connection when you first met.
b) At Airbnb, we offer the most unique accommodations. What makes them so special? The people who live there! Tell us three things about your home (or future home!) together that are unique to you as a couple.
c) Find a listing on Airbnb that inspires you and tell us why in 100 words or less. Head over to www.airbnb.com, find your favorite listing and post the link (i.e. www.airbnb.com/rooms/8357) at the end of your written entry. Here's a great place to start your search: http://www.airbnb.com/collections.
After you have submitted your entry, tell your friends, family, and fans to vote for you. Share it on Twitter, Facebook, and that blog you've been boasting about. This will give you the boost you need to be in the top 50 finalists and in the running for the grand prize of your dream honeymoon or a handsome travel certificate for Airbnb!
Just to be on the safe side, review our contest rules at the bottom right of each page, check the box in agreement, and select continue.
Airbnb will run the contest from 8:00 a.m. (PST) on June 20 through Friday, July 15 at midnight (PST). Winners will be announced July 25. Visit the link to the contest timeline found on the home page to keep track of what's happening.
The top 50 entries with the highest votes will progress to the final judging round where Airbnb representatives will choose the two Grand Prize winning couples. Please note: couples don't get to select which honeymoon package they win, but don't worry...both destinations are equally magical.
