Learn how to ace the application:

  • What do I need to do to apply?

    Head over to Tour the World's main page and enter your name and email. You'll receive an email with further instructions and a link to the application page. Fill out the form, including a public link to your YouTube video. Hit "send application," and you're all done!
    Please note: Your video should be titled "My audition to Tour the World." 
  • What are the judges looking for in my video?

    We want to know why you’re the right person to tour the world! Film a short video (maximum length of 2 minutes) showcasing what a day in your life looks like, highlighting why you’re the perfect person for this opportunity. Basically, our jury wants to know what you’re passionate about, the role travel plays in your life, and destinations you’ve dreamed of travelling to (and why). Bonus points awarded to anyone who makes themselves stand out from the crowd. The bigger your voice, the better!
  • Can a pair or team submit an application?

    This is your moment in the sun, meaning we’re only interested in meeting you as an individual! The purpose of this journey is for two complete strangers to tour the world together, so we will only be considering individual applications. 
  • Will my application be available for the public to view?

    While your application will not be made public, we may use videos submitted for promotional purposes and social media. If you are applying to be one of our travellers, you’ll be asked to sign a waiver on the application. 

Find out more about the grand prize:

  • When will I know if I’m selected?

    The jury will inform the two lucky travellers at the beginning of April 2019. 
  • Where will I be travelling?

    That’s a secret! One of the surprise elements of this trip is that you don’t know where you are going until you get on the plane (don’t worry, we’ll make sure you’re fully prepared for each destination). All we can tell you is that you’ll be travelling to five countries, and each country will be on a different continent. The entire trip will take fifty days to complete. 
  • Who will be travelling on the tour?

    The two winning travellers will be accompanied by a three-person film crew along with other travellers, forming a group of approximately 12 people in total.
  • Will I be filmed on the tour? Will the video be available to the public?

    Yes! Get ready to inspire wanderlust all over the world. One of the best things about travelling is the stories and memories that come from it, so we’re going to share your incredible journey by capturing it on video. Not only will you get to see the world, but you’ll also have an amazing souvenir of the entire experience to look back on for the rest of your life!
