Great news! Weleda, the world’s leading manufacturer of certified natural and organic cosmetics and herbal medicines, is delighted to announce its new Global Garden Campaign. This initiative has been devised to highlight the truly international and sustainable nature of Weleda’s business – with gardens all around the globe – and to give one intrepid explorer the chance to experience it at first hand!
Weleda is launching a unique Competition quite unlike anything we’ve previously promoted. The Winner will have a one-off opportunity to travel the world next spring on a carbon neutral journey, and to visit the different Weledas from March to June 2018.
Weleda will be looking for entrants from 18 different countries where Weleda operates, including:
* Argentina * Australia * Austria * Belgium * Brazil * Chile * Czech Republic * France * Germany
* Italy * Netherlands * New Zealand * Russia * Spain * Sweden * Switzerland * UK/Ireland * USA
Qualifying candidates from each country will then go through to the next stage of the competition, which will be open to a public vote. Each hopeful globetrotter will look to get as many votes as possible via a dedicated Global Garden online platform, in order to go through to the regional shortlist of 6 candidates for the 18 regions.
The final regional selection will be made by the Weleda judging panel on 12 September 2017. One Finalist from each country will then go forward to the international selection process in October 2017. Finalists must be free to travel out to Weleda Germany for this final phase of the competition.
In Germany, all 18 international Finalists will experience Weleda’s extensive organic herb gardens which are managed using strict biodynamic methods, where they will join in with the harvest. Finalists will also visit Weleda’s production suite where the range is made, and meet Weleda’s beauty expert Lilith Schwertle. This final stage of the assessment will include a series of practical workshops (writing, photography, social media, film) to enable candidates to really distinguish themselves.
At the end of this final audition, one Global Garden Winner will be selected by Weleda’s panel of experts, and this successful ‘horticultourist’ will be invited to pack a suitcase and head off on an incredible journey touring 11 different Weledas around the world!
The Winner will learn about many plant ingredients used in Weleda cosmetics and medicines, will meet the growers, join each Weleda team internationally for a few days, and come away with the experience of a lifetime!
Photographers, vloggers, bloggers, illustrators and other artistic types are encouraged to enter because there is so much scope for creative development in this project. The Global Garden Winner will be expected to compile imaginative and entertaining reports at each leg of the journey, which will be published on the Weleda Global Garden website.
Travel to each destination on this particular grand tour will be paid by Weleda, together with accommodation and subsistence at these stops, with some social events organised by Weleda. But any additional exploration or sightseeing along the way will be at the Winner’s expense. Contracted to work on the project over the three months, the Winner will have some free time to take in a few nearby sights at each destination, and will be given a very welcome 10,000 Euros spending money to be able to really enjoy the journey and take home a few mementos.
Terms and Conditions: You have to be at least 18 years old and you must be available to travel between March and June 2018. Excellent English language – both written and spoken – is a must, as well as the permission to travel to the preselected countries. You will also love sharing your experiences in a creative way and have fun editing high quality social media content for your fans. Sound like you? Enter now!
