Australia vs. NZ: Topdeck launches Battle of the Bloggers


12 November 2012

Australia vs. New Zealand: Topdeck launches Battle of the Bloggers
Leading youth operator Topdeck Travel has launched a ‘Battle of the Bloggers’ contest to help put to rest an age-old question - which is the best travel destination, Australia or New Zealand?

“Everyone knows Australia and New Zealand have a longstanding rivalry from rugby and netball to who wants Russell Crowe, but which is the best to visit? Topdeck is seeking two talented travel bloggers to help answer once and for all who rules the roost in Australasia,” Topdeck director of sales Asia Pacific Ben Ittensohn said.

The two victors of the Battle of the Bloggers will each win a dream holiday with Topdeck – one will experience a 14-day Island Suntanner in Australia and the other a 14-day Kiwi Encounter in New Zealand – and blog about their experiences.

“Each lucky winner will blog about their travels while on location and their thoughts will help influence a public voting panel to decide once and for all which is the best destination,” Mr Ittensohn said.

“The Battle of the Bloggers contest will suit personable, enthusiastic and creative travellers who enjoy telling others about their travel experiences.”

Applicants can be established bloggers or simply talented individuals with a desire to get involved in blogging.

To enter, applicants must follow three steps:

1. Write a blog of up to 500 words about one of their favourite travel experiences which must be in a Topdeck destination.

2. Post a video entry on YouTube (tagged with #battleofthebloggers and no more than 90 seconds long) about a travel experience which must be in a Topdeck destination.

3. Fill in their contact details and submit their entry at www.topdeck.travel/bloggers

Entries must be submitted by 30 November 2012. Topdeck will notify the winners by 24 December 2012.

Topdeck is a leading operator of holidays for 18 to 30 something year old travellers through Australia, New Zealand, Europe, North America, Africa, Egypt, Morocco and the Middle East.

Topdeck will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2013.

Further information about Topdeck’s range of trips can be found at www.topdeck.travel.
