You could win the dream job of flying to California with Air New Zealand and reporting on your adventures for our Time Out London mini-guide

California is a place for dreams and dreamers. Always has been. Iconic pop groups have sung about the surf, movies have made the Hollywood myth a glamorous reality and California’s mountains and natural beauty have been the muse for great art. 

Win your dream job

Can you capture the magic of travel? Do you have a passion for discovery? Visit California, Air New Zealand and Time Out are looking for a writer who can tell us about the best dining, entertainment and outdoor activities that California has to offer.

With Visit California as your host, you’ll have the chance to explore everything from San Francisco's art, music and dining scenes to surfing on Pismo Beach, to hiking in the LA hills and canyons. You won't be short of things to write about if you win!
