Some of the best things in life are for free. For example, the love and affection given by our parents and loving or doting grandparents. Nothing can and nothing ever will replace that greatness bestowed upon us, whether you attribute this special feeling to destiny or to the powers that be! But then, there are also other things that can come free of cost, albeit with you having to work for them a bit! And this one pertains to an absolutely free trip to one of the most beautiful places here on earth- Iceland, where, as reports suggest, a hotel by the name of Ranga is offering a paid holiday for as long as you can work some magic as a photographer!
So what is the challenge all about? Ever heard of Northern Lights? Well, yes the very phenomenon that makes visitors hog to an understated part of Europe in search of nature’s ephemeral beauty?
All you need to do is to click pictures and shoot videos of the Northern Lights, doing which can take you to an all expense paid stay at the Hotel Ranga in Iceland-bound Hella, which as we speak, is already searching for a fine photographer!
Tourism and Iceland, it ought to be reiterated, go hand-in-hand, much like Sauna and Finland and love and Paris or Fashion and Milan!
Situated at about a 90-minute drive from the capital city of Reykjavik, the famous Iceland, home to astonishingly talented artists like Bjork houses one of the most picturesque towns in the entirety of the European continent in the form of Hella!
Hella is actually a 90-minute drive away from the capital city, which in Indian parlance you might call a regular everyday commute for someone who, for instance, works in Gurgaon but lives in Noida or in the city of Mumbai, works in Nariman Point but stays in Nerul!
What do you reckon?
But that told, in order to ace this photography contest, what you need to do is to be sure of the following steps or procedures, as published in the revered Times of India, in order to submit your candidature for the Iceland-based Hotel’s consideration. And then, if all goes well, then who knows, you might succeed at it?
But first up, the rules and regulations for this contest are herewith:
The following are some simple but doable rules to be cognisant of, if in case you wish to apply for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity:
How to apply:
