Do You Have a Winning Vacation Face?
Hotels.com is offering daily prizes that include Flip video cameras. But it's the grand prize that's the big draw -- a check in the amount of $102,250, which the website says is enough to take 50 vacations (based on a calculation of $2,045 per getaway).
The winner can take a vacation every year for 50 years or one huge trip of a lifetime.
The contest was launched Memorial Day and runs through Labor Day.
Entries are being voted on by site users (votes can win a Flip too), with participants encouraged to "upload the funniest, most creative and compelling photo of themselves, which shows why they deserve a vacation."
Check out the site and you'll see snapshots of people looking sleepy, creepy and making funny faces. There are photos of people just plain smiling, and at least one guy seems to be playing passed out drunk.
Some folks pose with their families. Others show off their pets. There's a contestant in a neck brace. Among the most popular photos is a belly button.
Only one vote, per person, per day is allowed, but participants can encourage clicks by friends and colleagues and anyone else you know (which of course is the goal of the website in the first place).
A Hotels.com spokesperson said the contest is the website's biggest promotion to date.
