To be considered for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, visitors to the site need only answer six short questions.

The online contest is part of Singapore Airlines and National Geographic Channels integrated campaign, 24 Hours, aimed at boosting awareness of Singapore Airlines destinations.

In developing this campaign, Jeff Hutchens flew on Singapore Airlines to five cities - Cape Town, Ho Chi Minh City, Melbourne, Shanghai and Zurich - with the Channels film crew. The teams challenge: to capture on camera everything each city had to offer within 24 hours. The result is a series of 120- and 60-second vignettes currently being telecast on National Geographic Channels Asia, Taiwan, India, Korea, Japan and Europe feeds.

It highlights the citys well-known landmarks and favourite attractions while also revealing to viewers the other side of the city that only the locals know about, said Singapore Airlines Vice President Marketing Communications and Development, Ms Gina Lim-Singham.

We took a unique and fresh approach and came up with an integrated solution which embodies what is truly National Geographic, including our excellence in photography, sense of curiosity, and appreciation of diversity in our world, said Yvonne Tay, Director SEA - Advertising Sales & Integrated Marketing, National Geographic Channel Asia.

The vignettes can be viewed at leisure on the partners microsite. Visitors to the site will also be able to download photographs taken by Hutchens during his trip and send e-cards of the photographs to friends.
