A new competition is to offer young people the chance to enjoy a paid trip to Queensland.
Following on from the recent Best Job in the World campaign, Queensland's department of state development, trade and innovation has launched the Ultimate Gap Year competition to win a 12 month all-expenses paid trip in the region.
The total package is worth $25,000 and comes with a working holiday visa and is open to residents in Taiwan, South Korean, Japan, Colombia and Brazil. One person will be chosen from each country and entries must be submitted before the start of March.
Applicants must be between 18 and 30 and they need to upload a one minute film of them explaining why they would make a great student ambassador and how they could help promote the attractions of Queensland.
The five countries have been chosen because the state is keen to expand tourism in these regions and hopes the competition will raise the profile of Queensland overseas.
