Instagram Your Best 'Untamed Americas' Shot to Win a Prize Pack from National Geographic and Jaunted

May 15, 2012 at 7:05 PM | by | Comments (0)

C'mon—everybody knows that some of the coolest contests out there these days are on Instagram, the photo-sharing mobile app, and now we're thrilled to join 'em. In partnership with the National Geographic Channel to celebrate their coming epic 4-part series "Untamed Americas," we'll be helping you win a load of photography equipment and some spiffy Nat Geo swag.

All you've got to do is submit a photo to Instagram that, for you, defines "Untamed Americas." Okay, you have to do a couple more things as well, and they're detailed below.

Your intrepid Editor here at Jaunted, Cynthia Drescher, will judge the submissions along with Nat Geo WILD’s "America the Wild" Casey Anderson and landscape photographer Cole Rise. We're looking for the theme of "Untamed Americas," creativity, originality and (of course) photographic quality.

The Definitive Guide to Cathay Pacific's New Premium Economy Class

Where: Hong Kong
May 15, 2012 at 11:37 AM | by | Comments (2)

Premium Economy is hot, there's no doubt about that. It feels like almost every international airline is widening the seats, adding extra garnishes to the in-flight meals and cooing about deeper reclines for passengers willing to pay more than economy, but not so much as business class.

The latest airline to join the Premium party, Cathay Pacific, is also the one where ponying up the extra cash for extra cushion may make the most sense; the flight from New York to Hong Kong is a whopping 16 hours, after all.

Well we've flown it many times, mostly in Economy but also in Business and, now, in Premium Economy. Want to try it out yourself? ENTER HERE, into our contest to win a roundtrip (valued at $4,000) from the US or Canada to Hong Kong, in Cathay's new Premium Economy class.

Now, let's get down to the nitty-gritty:

Attention Texans: Win Party Passes and RT Tickets from Virgin America

November 18, 2010 at 1:24 PM | by | ()

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU.

Attention residents of the Lone Star state, but more specifically those of you in DALLAS: On December 1, the airline of mood lighting, cocktails and in-flight WiFi is landing at DFW for the first time. That's right, Virgin America is coming, with routes from LA and SF, and they're throwing a huge party at the Opera House, with Richard Branson, a performance by LMFAO and a "smoking" secret legendary musician.

But wait, there's more: We're giving away two VIP tickets to the party and two tickets for main cabin roundtrip flights on Virgin America! The flights can be used anytime through 2011 with a 21-day advance purchase and the exception of a few blackout dates. Therefore we need a winner from the Dallas area, who can make it to the party on December 1.

Texas might have been having a bad sports year, losing the World Series and watching the Cowboys bumble around the football field, but it is all coming back around with this give-away.

Here's how to win...

July 31, 2008 at 3:32 PM | by | Comments (0)

Alright, kids. You've got a little more than eight hours to submit your winning idea in our Layover Nation contest. At stake, as we're sure you know, is a stay at a swanky hotel in the Caribbean or one of six shiny new smartphones.

So click over to the contest page and drop your entry in the comments by 11:59 tonight. Unless of course you enjoy paying for your trips to the Turks & Caicos.

Finalists will be announced on September 5, and the winner will be declared after Michael Kinsley tries out your tips on a round-the-world trip later this fall.

The deadline for our Layover Nation Contest is July 31, and if we don't have your cool suggestions for how to kill time at a far-flung airport by then, you won't be winning a free trip to the Caribbean.

But we want you to win stuff! So Wendy Perrin, who's co-hosting this contest on her blog, put together some great tips:

· Come up with something surprising!

· Think like a storyteller

· Think internationally.

For even more specifics, click over to The Perrin Post. And once you've got your winning idea figured out, drop it here.
