If you’re not one of the first people in your life to snap a selfie at the beach or at the zoo, chances are you don’t have much to do while you’re at it.
But if you’re a selfie fanatic, you may be surprised to know that there’s a $3,500 reward offered by the site for you to take your photo at the world-famous Sydney Zoo.
The prize includes two days of accommodation at the Zoo, free access to a zoo area, and a special souvenir bag to hand out to the first selfie-seeking tourist who comes to the zoo.
If you have never taken a selfie before, you’ll need to spend $5,000 to join the competition, which is expected to attract upwards of 2,000 participants to Sydney this summer.
For a limited time only, Sydney Zoo will be giving away two free tickets to this year’s event.
These tickets are a key piece of a free trip to Sydney Zoo for tourists.
If your photo is the first of its kind to hit the internet, you will receive one free ticket, with the chance to win the prize package if you manage to win.
The winning tourist will then receive a free day at the Sydney Zoo, which will include a day at Zoo Park, a chance to meet the Zoo’s amazing animals and a trip to the Zoo for a day.
There are no plans to offer this prize to those who do not want to spend more than $5K on accommodation, which could mean you’ll have to spend a lot of money just to enter.
But, as the Zoo says, if you can get the most out of your trip, you could win a trip for the family to the Parklands and an adventure for yourself.
So, which selfie-obsessed tourist should you follow?
Well, if your photos are the first to hit a social media site, this might be the time to join in the fun.
If not, just keep an eye out for the announcement on the site to see if it has any new prizes up for grabs.
