Between now and June 30, Lufthansa is running a competition to judge the best photo taken from aboard one of their Boeing 747-8i aircraft. The contest is open to passengers who fly on the 747-8i between Frankfurt and Los Angeles, Washington DC, Delhi or Bangalore. The entry process is simple. You need to first register for the competition here, which will take you to this screen (click on ‘Upload Your Picture’):
At this point you will need to log in via your facebook account which will then take you to the contest entry page (you’ll get an email to activate your access to the entry page when you register):
The contest will have 2 phases to it. The first phase will have all submissions published on the contest’s Facebook page where people can vote for their favorite picture by “LIKING” it. Lufthansa’s selection committee will then take the top 30 most “LIKED” images and will select 10 winners from this group.
The top pick from this group of 10 will receive a GoPro Hero3 camera while the remaining 9 will receive an enlargement of their photo framed beneath acrylic glass suitable for hanging on a wall.
Grand Prize: A GoPro Hero3
9 Runners Up will receive an enlarged photo of their entry
The hard part for me will be which of my 600+ photos of the 747-8i I should be to enter……perhaps all of them? 🙂
The contest is open in every country except Italy. You can only sign up once for the contest, but can submit multiple entries.
FIRST OFF, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
now for the rest of the story…..
Lufthansa is currently offering discount travel vouchers that can be redeemed on Lufthansa operated flights worldwide. Normally these voucher offers tend to be limited to Europe, but in this case the vouchers are available from most countries that Lufthansa serves.
The value of the vouchers vary slightly between countries and are denominated in local currencies. For example, someone in Europe requesting a voucher will get one for €20, someone booking travel from the USA will receive $40 and someone in Hong Kong will receive a voucher valued at HKD$450.
The voucher applies to the base or tariff fare and does not affect the taxes and fees for the ticket. The voucher can be redeemed for travel until 10 March. Travel must be completed by 10 June.
Please note that when you look at the terms and conditions, it may appear that the code is good until October, but Lufthansa uses the European format for dates: DD/MM/YYYY.
To request a voucher please use this link. Once providing Lufthansa with your name and email address, a voucher code will be immediately emailed to you and you can apply that code when booking travel on Lufthansa.com.
During the month of December, Lufthansa is holding a contest that will award 2 Economy Class tickets from the USA or Canada to Europe to a lucky winner who uses one of three Self-Check-In methods when flying Lufthansa this month. Please use this link to visit the Sweepstakes Entry Page so that you can register for the Promotion.
To be eligible for the drawing, you must:
1. Register for the Sweepstakes.
2. Be a resident of the USA or Canada (except Puerto Rico or Quebec).
3. Be flying on Lufthansa this month.
Once registered, all you need to do is to check in for your Lufthansa flight either through Online Check-In, Mobile Check-In, or at a Self-Serve Kiosk.
In reading the terms/conditions, I noticed a strange disclosure that indicates that if the winner is from Canada, they will need to answer a “skill question” via email in order to be to receive the Grand Prize. I’m not sure what that means exactly, but it is something that will affect the winner if they’re Canadian.
The contest ends at 5:00p (EST) on December 31, 2012. The Winner must complete travel by November 30, 2013.
To celebrate the Holidays, beginning on December 1 Lufthansa will launch their “Christmas List” contest on their Facebook page that will give away 13 fantastic prizes.
The contest will require visiting their Facebook site each day in order to complete a “Christmas List”. The list will actually be a jig-saw puzzle that will be assembled through pieces that are earned for each visit. The prizes themselves will comprise the jigsaw puzzles so when you complete a puzzle you will be entered to win that prize.
The difficulty of the puzzle will depend on the value of the gift. The higher the value of the gift, the more complex the puzzle.
Each person will be given one Christmas List and can earn an additional 3 Christmas Lists by inviting their “Facebook Friends” to join the contest. The objective there is to obviously earn more entries by referring others to the contest.
Information at the moment is limited, and the contest is not yet published on their Facebook page. The contest will run from December 1 to December 24 and based on the terms and conditions, will be open to everyone regardless of country of residence.
The list of prizes for this contest is impressive:
2 Roundtrip Intercontinental Tickets
50,000 Miles & More Miles
Apple iPad (64GB/Black)
Lufthansa Airlight Multiwheel XL+ Suitcase
Fujifilm Finepix XP150 Digi-cam
Bric’s Life Holdall
Lufthansa Radar Watch
Wenger Patriot 2 Laptop Trolley Case
Sennheiser HD 218i Headphones
Philips LivingColors Bloom Color Changing Lamp
Deuter ACT Trail 28 backpack
Airbus A380-800 Model (1:200 scale)
Titan Trolley Case
Most of these prizes are in the Worldshop Catalog if you’d like to take a closer look at them.
Lufthansa is currently running a Sweepstakes on their Facebook page that will award 3 lucky winners each with 30,000 miles for their ‘Miles & More’ Accounts.
To enter, you need to visit Lufthansa’s Facebook page, and “Like It”. Once you do that, click on the “App Around The World” application tab to be taken to the contest’s entry page. Or you can simply click here to be taken directly to the contest’s page. Just make sure that you first “LIKE” Lufthansa’s Facebook page.
Once you’ve reached the contest page, you’ll need to complete 4 puzzles in order to complete a Japan themed phrase (think of it like Wheel of Fortune). The puzzles are not the easiest, but manageable within a few minutes. With each successful completion of a puzzle, you’ll gain the letters you need to complete the phrase which will be your entry into the contest.
This is the Contest’s “Homepage” (notice the 4 puzzle tabs on the right):
The contest ends at 4pm Eastern Time on November 26. 3 Winners will be randomly selected from eligible entries on November 27 and will be contacted via email (your Facebook account’s email address) shortly thereafter.
The contest is open to ‘US Residents Only’ which is rare. Normally, most Lufthansa contests are not available to those of us in the USA.
