UPDATE APRIL 2017: Momondo’s 2017 competition to win a DNA and journey are out now
Are you interested in finding out where you came from based on your DNA? Ever wondered what makes you, you? If you answered yes to either question you’ll be interested to know that Momondo (yes, the big name in the travel industry) has teamed up with both AncestryDNA and 23andMe to launch their “Lets Open Our World” competition.
Momondo says that it’s time to discover that there are more things uniting us than dividing us. “There would quite likely be a lot less extremism in the world if people knew their heritage. We truly are children of the world, and not of a ‘pure race’.
WIN your own DNA kit and go on a journey to discover where you are from.
1. WIN A DNA KIT AND FIND OUT HOW DIVERSE YOU ARE
All you have to do is tell us why you should win a DNA kit (spit test), by 16th August 2016. If you win a DNA kit, you can take the next step towards winning the journey of your life.
2. WIN A JOURNEY OF YOUR LIFE
When you get your DNA results, shoot a short video of how you react to seeing where you’re from for the very first time – who knows what emotions you’ll capture! Your video is your ticket to winning a journey of your life: a trip to every country you’re from, or a trip to your favourite country found in your DNA.
“EXPLORE YOUR DIVERSITY AND FIND OUT HOW CONNECTED
YOU ARE TO THE REST OF THE WORLD.
JOIN THE COMPETITION AND WIN AMAZING JOURNEYS.”
The prizes on offer are:
– the journey of your life: a trip to every country you’re from
– 17 trips: travel to your favourite country found in your DNA
– 500 DNA kits: find out where you’re from
This competition is open to people aged 18 or over who ‘permanently reside’ in Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom or the USA.
