A huge thanks to all the following who have donated the prizes for this huge Round the World competition!
With prizes this big, we do need some time to find the perfect travellers to win our prizes so participants have 8 weeks to enter.
Each week, participants guess the destination from the provided clues and enter online. One random winner will be chosen from the correct answers each week and awarded a weekly prize. After eight weeks — with eight chances to win — everyone will know the route and there will be eight finalists. One of those eight finalists will win the Grand Prize package for two while two more winners will receive the First and Second Prize awards!
