How can you get involved?
Do what you do best BLOG!

This year we are planning to try something a bit different.

Step 1.

Choose what type of blogger you are:

The serious foodie
Crafting King or Queen
The style guru
Adventure junkie
Fab photographer
Creative writer

Step 2.

Tell us what makes your perfect holiday? Would you love to bungie Jump from the Grand Canyon, learn to cook Thai street food or walk the Paris fashion week catwalk? Be as creative as you like. And if you want to, you can enter a post for more than one profile, we just ask for one post per category and each blog be different.

Please don’t feel like you have to write your university dissertation again, just have fun and be creative.

Step 3.

Satisfy our nosiness and fill in the survey. We would love to find out a bit more about you and your family, what you like doing and how you would be a great addition to our team. Please complete this short Mark Warner Blogger Survey (we promise it won’t take long!). Obviously all information you give us is private and will only be used in the conjunction with this project by the Mark Warner Marketing Department.

Step 4.

Be social. Once you have completed your questionnaire and blog please tweet a link to your post tagging @MWHolidays and using the hashtag #markWarnerMum or #MarkWarnerDad by 19 February to complete your entry.

Judging

Mark Warner will select the 6 winning bloggers on a combination of the following criteria;
– Quality and creativity of the blog post
– Social interactions and followers
– What other holiday brands the blogger is working with

We will also be enlisting the help of this year’s bloggers for the judging.

The winners will be announced 26 February 2016.

We can’t wait to see your posts, but in the meantime, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Polly or Emilia in the Marketing Department.

Good Luck!

NB: Although we would love to welcome families of all shapes and sizes, any families over 5 people will be a struggle to fit into bedrooms and cause us to be told off by our finance department. If you are a big family you can still enter and we will get you the best price possible for the extra family members.
