Anaheim, Calif., Oct. 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Contiki (www.contiki.com), the world's leading travel brand for 18-35s, is thrilled to announce their continued partnership with Los Angeles-based MTV stars The Buried Life (www.theburiedlife.com), by celebrating the launch of 'The Most #epicbucketlist Contest (Ever)' (www.epicbucketlist2014.com)! Both brands were so inspired and overwhelmed by the mass of compelling submissions of their recent #5thMember campaign that they aligned together again to give students and young working professionals the opportunity to truly fulfill their own bucket list items, based on The Buried Life's award-winning mission, which asks: "What do you want to do before you die?"
Millennials can select their top 5 "epic" list items from a list of adventures curated by the TBL boys, then share their personal lists through their social channels, complete challenges to gain points, and ultimately enter to win a trip for the history books. The grand prize winner and a friend may possibly join Duncan Penn, Dave Lingwood, Ben Nemtin and Jonnie Penn on this unprecedented adventure. Along the way, as is their promise, the TBL foursome will make helping others a key part of the journey.
"The Most #epicbucketlist Contest" Details
Millennials can go to the contest website (www.epicbucketlist2014.com) and select 5 out of the 20 EPIC Bucket List items that are featured on the site. They can choose amazing list items such as "Swim with Sharks in the Galapagos," "Sail the Greek Islands on a Private Yacht," and "Snowball Fight on a Glacier in New Zealand". They can increase their chances of winning by sharing their lists through their social channels, choosing their travel partner, uploading videos & photos, referring friends and achieving special challenges. The Buried Life and Contiki will review the most enthusiastic submissions, personally select the grand prize winner and both brands will make the announcement on December 1st, 2014. The winner and a friend will cross items off their list while adding some new ones with The Buried Life.
"Partnering with Contiki to launch the Most #epicbucketlist Contest (Ever) has been like arriving at the end of a rainbow. Why? Because it's sparkling, rare, and about to be very coveted, so thanks to Contiki and to their magical leprechaun for partnering with us,"" says Duncan Penn.
Ben Nemtin adds, "What we've cooked up together is going to be absolutely life-changing for the grand prize winner and just like a Contiki trip, this adventure is going to leave two young people with a whole new perspective on life."

About The Buried Life
In 2006, The Buried Life, whose members hail from Victoria, Canada, embarked on a 2-week road trip across North America before they returned to university. That brief road trip was transformed into an incredible journey that continues to this day. The foursome made a list of '100 Things to Do Before You Die' and for every list item they accomplished, they helped a stranger do something on their list. Since then, they've crossed off 'Make a TV Show' (produced 26 MTV USA episodes which aired in 110 countries), 'Write a #1 New York Times Bestselling Book', 'Play Ball with President Obama', and 'Outfit a Teenage Girl with her First Bionic Arm'. They have also given motivational presentations at over 100 North American college campuses and several TEDx Talks across Europe. Along the way, they've encouraged millions to believe that anything is possible.
