You Could Win a Trip to Iceland With Icelandair’s #SEAcloseup Challenge!

Throughout Taste of Iceland in Seattle 2019, festival goers will have a chance to win a trip to Iceland! To celebrate 10 years of Icelandair servicing Seattleites, Taste of Iceland teamed up with the airline to bring Washingtonians a chance to win a fabulous 10-day trip to Iceland among other exciting, Icelandic prizes with the #SEAcloseup Challenge! From October 9-19, 2019, Icelandair representatives will be hosting the #SEAcloseup Challenge to test your knowledge of Seattle and Icelandair. 

To play: On each morning of the contest at 9am, a close-up photo and clue of a Puget Sound area location will be posted on Icelandair’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, each highlighting Seattle’s connection to her Icelandic sister city of Reykjavik. Comment your guess of the location – along with “#SEAcloseup” – by 4pm that day for the chance to win that day’s prize. Each day’s winner will be chosen randomly from all correct answers submitted across Icelandair’s social media accounts. Once each day’s winner is chosen at 5pm, Icelandair will reply to the winner’s comment and private message them through the platform on which they participated. 

On October 19, 2019, the final winner of the #SEAcloseup Challenge will be awarded the grand prize of an amazing 10-day trip to Iceland. The award will handed out on stage at the free, 21+ Taste of Iceland concert “Reykjavik Calling,” at KEXP – Seattle Center. The award event will be live-streamed on the official Instagram account of Icelandair.
