Each week, PayPal will select the top six party pictures and deposit $500 in the eligible winner party-host’s PayPal account.
Thursday, 7 May 2020: While social distancing restrictions are gradually starting to lift, Aussies still face a long winter of not being able to venture far from their own homes or have large indoor gatherings. But there’s good news for everyone dreading another minute of cabin fever: PayPal Australia has launched a new national competition and is challenging Aussies to throw the best ‘iso-party’ and go into the running to win one of six, $500 prizes every week for 4 weeks.
The competition - It Pays to Keep Your Distance – kicks off this weekend and will run for the month of May. To enter, all you need to do is gather your family or friends together virtually, throw an awesome party, and share a screenshot of your party in full flare on Instagram. Make sure to follow and tag @PayPalAU Instagram page and include the hashtag #PayPalisoParty in the post. Each week, PayPal will select the top six party pictures and deposit $500 in the eligible winner party-host’s PayPal account.
The catch? There isn’t one…except everyone knows a party isn’t a party, without a theme. So, to spice things up and inspire partygoers to get inventive, PayPal has set weekly themes:
But the competition is not restricted to just these themes! If you are celebrating a festive occasion in May such as a birthday party, anniversary, baby shower or other occasion, you are also eligible to enter by posting a picture of your virtual party to Instagram
PayPal’s Shopping Expert, Danielle Grant, said now there is no reason for any Aussie to say they have nothing to do this weekend:
“Over the last couple of months, I’ve really missed hanging out with my extended family and my friends. But I’ve learnt during this time is that keeping your physical distance doesn’t mean you have to be completely isolated. Connecting online is a great way to hang out and look after our mental health during this challenging period.
While the social distancing restrictions are gradually easing, we still all need to do our bit to help flatten the curve and avoid gathering in large groups. So, if you’re looking for things to do this weekend, look no further, get your friends together online and throw a virtual iso-party! We want to see creativity, flare, and out-of-the box thinking!
