Australia’s top blogger launches blogger competition for Tourism Queensland

darren rowseAustralia’s most prominent blogger Darren Rowse has launched a competition for Tourism Queensland to find ten of the world’s “most intriguing” bloggers to win a trip to the state and write for the official TQ blog.

Bloggers must explain in 150 words why they would make the ideal ‘Queensland Blogger Correspondent’. 

The winning bloggers will get a five day all expenses paid stay in Queensland, trips to the state’s main attractions, as well as some blogging training from Rowse.

The competition is designed to find bloggers from a variety  of niches. Entrants need to submit details about their audience size and demographics. The competition is open to bloggers from anywhere in the world, including Australia. In return, bloggers must agree to give Tourism Queensland the rights to the content created on the trip in perpetuity.

Rowse claims he conceived the idea while waiting in an Queensland airport and it has taken a year to bring it to fruition.
