"AuPairWorld around the globe" – This is the motto of our 15 Year Anniversary Contest and your chance to show us where you are around the world and maybe to win one of 15 great prizes.

This is how it works

 Send us a photo of yourself as an au pair or a host family, wherever you happen to be – at home, in your host country, on holiday. In your photo include a landmark, a building, a pretty landscape, a place-name sign that is typical of the place where you are. For our company headquarters here in Kassel, Germany, for example, we took pictures that included the Hercules monument (Kassel's most famous landmark) or the Orangerie (the pretty yellow building that today houses a technology museum).

And this should also be in your picture

A connection to AuPairWorld. Here you can bring all your creativity into play. You might include our slogan in your picture (we connect • we care) or the AuPairWorld boomerangs or the AuPairWorld colours turqoise and orange. Whatever you can think of that shows a link to AuPairWorld. Our photos included with this article should give you some ideas to get started with.

And here are the prizes:

15 prizes will be awarded among participants who have submitted a photo:

1st prize:

Two travel vouchers each in the amount of 500 EUR to be awarded to one au pair and to one host family

2nd prize:

Two Kindle Paperwhite ebook readers (one each for a host family and an au pair) with a value of approx. 100 EUR.

3rd prize: 

11 Amazon gift certificates in the amount of 15 EUR for au pairs or host families

With the  submission of your entry by email you indicate your acceptance of the AuPairWorld 15 Year Anniversary Contest Rules. (see below)

As soon as we have received all the entries we will present them on the AuPairWorld Facebook page. And this is where things get really exciting. The photos that receive the most "likes" will be our contest winners.

Have fun with your photo shooting. We'll be looking forward to seeing and sharing your photos from around the globe!
