Kabuni Launches Contest to Find International Ambassador; Winner Receives 12-Month/12-Country Trip of a Lifetime
Interior design and international travel have never gone this well together. Applications have opened for the Kabuni #go12x12 Contest – a creative search for the Brand’s International Ambassador. After entrants submit their #go12x12 Inspiration Boards through the Kabuni App, one winner will be selected from a group of 12 semi-finalists, and will hop on a plane on January 2, 2017, taking off to experience 12 countries in 12 months; sharing the stories of the people and places they meet along the way.
Touching down on almost every continent, the contest winner’s experience will take them from countries like Brazil, Australia, India, Japan, South Africa and Italy, to name a few. To make the contest winner’s experience of travelling and living internationally for 12 months, Kabuni is working with select Global Partners, sponsoring airfares, on-ground transportation and accommodation through to support in getting connected to local and global media sources.
Through the written word, photos and video, the newly appointed International Ambassador will document their experience in each country and city they visit, capturing what it means to be a conversation-starter for a global audience hanging on their every word. It’s an expansive opportunity to grow. It’s an impactful way to contribute to a bigger conversation about culture, design, community and social responsibility. And, it’s an opportunity to further the winner’s career, helping Kabuni grow through their experience when they return home.
Kabuni CEO and Founder Neil Patel is excited about the launch of the contest and the exposure to diverse global cultures the trip will create. Beyond the contribution to the design community, Neil also sees the value in the trip bringing light to an important Kabuni initiative: creating positive social change in local communities world wide.
“Our International Ambassador will champion Kabuni in each of the 12 countries, and get involved in giving a voice to local community initiatives aimed at reducing homelessness. We see this as a life changing opportunity for immense professional and personal growth which has the potential to lead into a more permanent place in the Kabuni family.”
Contest applications opened on February 26, and will remain open throughout the duration of the contest. As of May 1, 2016, contest applicants will be able to begin creating their #go12x12 Inspiration Boards in the Kabuni App. Once their board is complete, entrants can invite friends and family members to join the Kabuni community to like and follow their board. Their ability to get more attention to their board is their ticket to the final contest round; the 12 most-followed boards will move onto the final judging round, occurring between October 1 – 31, 2016, with the grand prize winner announced on or before November 1, 2016 – which is more than enough time for them to get their affairs in order for take off on January 2, 2017.
