Are we supposed to write about our dream destination or are we supposed to select a destination blindly (like write 10 random destinations, fold the paper, blindfold oneself and pick one) and write why that might become our dream destination? Unable to grasp what this blindlist means...

It does not make any sense of the place when you are blind. In this contest, you have to write blog-post (short-story) about you as a blind for a date somewhere in the world.

Hi Rajesh, #TheBlindList is a celebration of the intrigue and magic in the world around us; a salute to your open mindedness and blind love for the world that inspires you to say yes to the unknown.

Is the word blind date open to interpretations,  or do you have a definition for it?

@Shridhar -  It is an enriching and unforgettable experience that will remain a secret until it has been won!

Great topic but let us know more detail about it. Whether we need to write the list of places or story/experience of existing travel or imaginary travel.

Thanks BB. You can talk about your bucket lists, your dream destinations; experiences that excite you to #SayYesToTheWorld! It could be anything- experiences, places, destination you have visited, or you wish to visit. You could talk about travelling to an unknown place – imaginary or real – to experience something you know nothing about.

Oooooh. I wouldn't mind participating in this. Its already at the top of my mind, just didn't know where or how or when to dump it. It says to tag Lufthansa in Facebook and Twitter but doesn't say if I need to tag 'Lufthansa' or 'Lufthansa India' handle.

Hey Sorceror, it's Lufthansa India - the hyperlinks are in the contest rules section for reference

Word limit or video length is not stated. Can we submit infographic too?

Its a contest so theyre going to judge your entry based on how well you think it carries the message. So the length and king of content totally depends on you.

What is the date of result declaration?

This depends greatly on the number of entries submitted. Usually it's about 2 weeks-ish, although sometimes it can be longer.

Does it have to be about someplace in India or around the world?

Although excited, I am in a fix about this campaign. What do you mean a blind date? And what is expected from the blog article? Can someone clarify please?

Karthik Murali H

If they dont mention anything in specific, it means it's open to interpretation. you can have your own definition of a blind date to a place you want to go or have been.

I think what is expected from the blog article has already been listed in detail in the contest page

Nihal Lazarus

Hey Asha, all your questions have been asked and answered in this thread and on the contest page. Let me know if you'd like any clarification on them.

Able to finish one post for this contest... not sure if I have interpreted the given topic correctly. So I hope there will be a few bloggers reading this who may wish to read my post and comment. Do tell me if my interpretation is too far flung and improbable.

We can write about imaginary places. Does that mean posts with fictional stories will also qualify?

The keywords has to be in the body or title?

Dear Nihal,

In the contest Rules list it didn't say to Tag Lufthansa India, It just says Tag 'Lufthansa'. I am pasting the sentance that has it: Please use the hashtags #TheBlindList and #SayYesToTheWorld in your blog and your social medial posts tagging 'Lufthansa' on Facebook and Twitter.

And the word 'Lufthansa' is not hyperlinked so it is not clear whether it is exactly the LufthansaIndia that we need to tag.

Anyways, the thing is that I have posted my entry with only 'Lufthansa' tag not LufthansaIndia tag, so my question is that may I again have to share my 2 entries on facebook and twitter with tagging LufthansaIndia ?  I mean since I have tagged on Lufthansa only (as decribed in rule list ), so would my entries be discarded on this basis?

 

Nihal Lazarus

Hey Neeraj, although the word Lufthansa has not been hyperlinked, the words Facebook and Twitter are linked to the respective Lufthansa India handles. The rules have mentioned these exact handles that you have to tag.  As it currently stands, your post could be discarded as you haven't tagged the right handles.

The Sorcerer

Actually, Nihal. When you try to tag Lufthansa India, the only verified page option is Lufthansa. It is only when you going to their page you realize it redirects it automatically to Lufthansa India. I think its specification to the location of the person who clicks on it. But you type out Lufthansa India completely, you only select that one verified page option.

@sorceror & Neeraj - I've updated the Contest rules to say Lufthansa India in addition to the 2 hyperlinks now. This should sort out the confusion :)

Looking forward to reading your post whenever the URLs are open... :)

@Nihal-- Thanks a lot for making the things clear. Now I can only hope  that my entries don't get discarded due to the 'Lufthansa' handle. Though I have re- posted  at twitter and facebook with LuthansaIndia handle and hope that the reposting stands valid. Anyways thanx agian Nihal formaking things clear.

Hi Nihal,

I made two mistakes. After submitting I shared in social media with the lufthansa handle. Then i read this thread fully and then shared it with both the lufthansa and lufthansa india handle once more. But the worst mistake I made was in modifying my entries a bit after submission. I have submitted two entries. In the first entry the modifications are minor and around 98 % of the post remains the same. In the second entry I have added a bit of text but wharever I wrote earlier is not changed toobmuch. It is really an honest mistake. I thought I was free to change things till the final date of submission which is 17th. Do you think my entries are bound to get rejected? It is really an honest mistake. Feeling rather wiebegone because I put in a lot of effort. Still let me know.,

In my opinion it is absolutely ok to make changes, if necessary, until the final submission date. However, the inditeam will know better.

Hey Arvind, now that I have unintentionally bumped into you in Delhi and shook your hand, I am assuming you rubbed some of your 'Midas touch' for winning blog contests on me enough to win my first one! :P

The Gods are always with you, buddy... and winning a contest is just one of the many ways he blesses. :) I'm sure you will win this one.
