Behr Paint

If you're a #nofilter kind of person who wants to travel the world and have someone else pick up the tab, the gig of "color explorer" may be for you.

Behr Paint is holding a contest where the winner will get to travel the world to find inspiration for creating new paint colors and their quirky names. The Behr Color Explorer will receive all-expense paid flights, lodging and prepaid adventures valued at approximately $20,000, according to the company, plus a $10,000 stipend.

"We have a few inspiring, colorful destinations in mind, like the glacial blues of Lake Louise in Banff, Canada, and the colorful exteriors of Charleston, South Carolina's Rainbow Row, but we'll be working with the selected Color Explorer to finalize their itinerary," a spokesperson for Behr tells CNBC Make It.

During their travels, the winner will have to take detailed notes and photos of color inspiration and share their journey on both social media and Behr's Colorfully. The winner will work with Behr color experts to create and name new paint colors and names.

To enter, among other qualifications, applicants must write in 150 words or less what color inspires them the most and why. Behr will select the best answer. Travel dates are not set but will be "during the summer," according to the Behr spokesperson. The deadline is May 15.
