How do people enter?

To enter the competition, Facebook users go to the Queensland Facebook page at www.facebook.com/visitqueensland and begin their application for their Passport to Shine by ‘liking’ the Queensland page.

By indicating they like the Queensland page, the Facebook user then allows Tourism Queensland to access some of their basic Facebook profile information as well as giving permission for Tourism Queensland to contact them with information about holidaying in Queensland.

Once these two steps are completed (in two simple clicks) their entry form will automatically be populated with the information required to start their entry.

How does Passport to Shine work?

Once entered, entrants will be asked to choose one Queensland experience from eight available. This experience will be entered into their virtual passport. Entrants will then be able to choose two more experiences for their passports when further Queensland experiences are released in weeks three and five of the competition. This means an entrant can choose a maximum of three Queensland experiences for their passport by the end of the competition.

Each time an entrant chooses an experience, their eligible prize amount doubles. If they choose one experience, they will be eligible for a $25,000AUD Queensland holiday experience; if they choose two experiences, they will be eligible for a $50,000AUD Queensland holiday experience and by selecting a third experience, they will be eligible for the full holiday prize amount of $100,000AUD.

Users who enter the campaign at a late stage will still be able to enter three experiences into their passports to vie for the maximum prize amount.
