If you love traveling the world, and don’t mind spending an awful lot of time on airplanes, this Southwest Airlines job might be for you.

Southwest Airlines recently announced that it’s looking for influencers and storytellers to create travel content. Candidates will be asked to compete for the chance to win a grand prize of up to 12 round-trip tickets from Southwest, valued at approximately $4,800, according to USA Today.

The grand prize winner can expect to travel, free of charge, to 99 destinations across the US, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central America, creating content for Southwest.

To apply, you must be at least 21 years old and have over 2,500 Instagram followers. If this is the case, then simply follow Southwest on Instagram, choose your best travel photo post, tag @southwestair, #SouthwestStoryTellers, and #contest, and write a caption that tells a engaging travel story. Southwest will choose 100 photos among the entries. The 100 candidates selected will then need to fill out a survey about their social media influencer background and why they’re a good fit for the position. Based on the survey results, 10 finalists will be chosen.

From the top 10, judges will select a single grand prize winner (who gets 12 round-trip tickets), a second-place winner (six round-trip tickets), two third-prize winners (a $5,000 Southwest gift card), and five fourth-prize winners (10,000 Southwest rewards points).

You have until February 24 to apply. The top 100 entrants will be notified around March 11.
