Irrespective o f whether
you work for a multinational or a small startup;
whether you're employed
in a tiny rural village or a city
that never sleeps; whether
you're a CEO or a factory
worker, here's a chance for
you and your colleagues to
win an all expenses trip to
the tune of a million dollars
(AUD) to Queensland,
Australia. Your only
qualification to enter the
competition is that you hold
down a job and have at least
three workmates.

To enter, create a 60-second video featuring a minimum of three people from your company a s they describe why your organisation is a great place to work, and then talk about what makes Queensland the ultimate holiday destination.

The winning organisation creates their own itinerary - opt for scuba diving in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef, sky diving from an altitude of 14,000 feet, white water rafting across the Barron River or the less adventurous could sip champagne on a luxury cruise liner. Whatever you fancy one million dollars ought to buy it!

But what's in it for the makers o f the competition? Well, the competition with this huge budget is a clever ploy and a much-needed one in the face of monster cyclone Yasi and the recent floods i n Queensland. Together, the natural disasters saw a huge dip (about 380 million AUD) in the economy o f the sunny region where tourism plays a very important role -- 9.1 billion Australian dollars to be precise. The minister for tourism, Jan Jarrett says, "We want to let the world know that Queensland is open for business."
