And a half hour later in Newfoundland — a contest

June 20th, 2011

Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism is pairing up with WestJet to launch one of the biggest travel contests in the province’s history.

At 12 p.m. Newfoundland Daylight Time (10:30 AM Eastern Daylight Time), Wednesday, June 22, the 48 Half Hours contest will launch online via Facebook, giving people across Canada a chance to win one round-trip flight every half hour for a non-stop 48 half-hour period (that’s 24-hours to some folks).

People can enter as many times as they like until the contest closes at noon, NDT time (10:30 a.m. EDT), June 23.

The 48 Half Hours contest, created by St. John’s-based ad agency Target, is a celebration of Newfoundland and Labrador’s unusual half hour time difference.

Having their own time zone, half an hour ahead of everyone else, is more than a product of the province’s geography. It’s an unusual, compelling part of the place and its just one of the many differences that makes Newfoundland and Labrador such a unique destination. What else would you expect from a place with its very own time zone?

To enter the 48 Half Hours contest on June 22 visit Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism’s Facebook page and click on the 48 Half Hours tab to the left of the wall feed.
