Do you love to travel?

Got a best friend who loves to travel, too?

Would you love to be given $10,000 to cover the expenses of a weeklong vacation together — plus another $5,000 in Visa gift cards?

If so, we’ve got a dream job for you: Flytographer, a company that arranges photoshoots in destinations around the world, is looking for two best friends to hire as their Chief Memory Makers.

If selected, you and your BFF – which the company says could be a friend, sibling, parent or even a neighbor – will be given a $10,000 stipend to travel to one of Flytographer’s 350 destinations for a week, plus a “salary” of $5,000 in Visa gift cards.

What’s the catch?

All the Canadian-based company asks is that their two Chief Memory Makers participate in a 60-minute Flytoghapher photoshoot — valued at $385, according to the site — and to capture as many memories as they can on their trip for the Flytographer Instagram account.

Even if you don't win, you can still take a dream trip with your bestie — just follow these tips for saving on international travel.

Applicants must be 21 years old and need to be available to travel between June 1 and Aug. 31, 2023.

If this dream job sounds right for you – and, honestly, how could it not? – head over to Flytographer and apply by May 15, 2023. You’ll need to provide some basic information about yourself and explain in 500 words or less why you and your BFF should be Flytographer’s Chief Memory Makers. The winner will be selected by May 23, 2023.

Happy Travels!
