  • What is Schär Glutenfree Summer?

    Schär searches three online-affine travellers for a gluten-free journey through Italy on August 2016. The three travellers will be detected using a public application process. During the journey, the travellers will spend the nights in selected Schär Glutenfree Holidays Hotels and use the Schär GlutenfreeRoads app to find gluten-free shops or restaurants.

    The “job” for the travellers will be to capture and share the different expressions and experiences during the journey using social media, the own blog, YouTube and so on. 

    The community will vote for the most engaging traveller and the most creative post on social media. The best voted traveller and the traveller with the highest voted post will win a valuable prize.

  • Will the three gluten-free travellers tour together or separately?

    Every traveller will go on holiday separately, but that doesn’t mean that there won’t be a Glutenfree Summer party someday during the journey with all three travellers.

  • What prerequisites do I need to successfully apply for Schär Glutenfree Summer?

    You should be communicative and experienced in the online-media environment, be at least 21 years old, and hold a valid driver’s licence for Italy (European Union). Be creative, be yourself and show us and the gluten-free community that you are the right traveller for the gluten-free journey.

  • How long will the journey last?

    The journey will last from 1st to 31st August 2016.

  • Unfortunately, I don't have a driving licence. Can I participate using public transport?

    Flexibility is a priority. Therefore, we can only consider candidates who hold a valid driver's licence for Italy (European Union).

  • What is the minimum age for participating at Schär Glutenfree Summer?

    You must be at least 21 years old.

  • I've never taken part in a project like this, but I'm very keen. I love travelling and I'm very active in social media. Can I nevertheless apply?

    Excellent, that’s a great start. You don’t need to have prior experience. All you need to do now is convince the gluten-free community and the Schär Panel of Experts of your application on social media.

  • My English is not so good and I prefer to use another language in my posts during the journey. Is this possible?

    Sure, Schär Glutenfree Summer is an international project and we appreciate to have as many different languages and cultures as possible. Therefore, apply with the language you are the most familiar with.

  • Can I participate even if I am not celiac / gluten sensitive?

    Yes, you can also participate if you are not celiac or gluten sensitive. But be aware that you will eat a lots of yummy gluten-free food during your journey. Nevertheless, you should have some basic knowledge and interest on the subject of healthy nutrition and be familiarized with gluten-free food.

  • What should my application for Schär Glutenfree Summer contain?

    Your application should contain a public contribution on a social network of your choice. The content and the type of the application is up to you. Be creative and convince us and the gluten-free community that you are the right person for the journey. The voting on the page and the reactions on your post will greatly improve your chances with the Schär Panel of Experts.

    Furthermore, in order to get to know you better, we look forward to receiving from you a letter of motivation along with your idea of a perfect gluten-free summer. Take a look at the Schär Glutenfree Holidays and Schär GlutenfreeRoads for a better insight into our online services.
