How much money would it take for you to quit your job in order to follow your dreams? Sustainable clothing company Prana is betting that six figures would do it.

In their “Day Job to Dream Job Promotion,” the company is offering one lucky winner $100,000 to quit their current gig and make their passion project into a full-time job.

Per the contest application page:

…we know from experience that personal growth often lies outside your comfort zone. And sometimes, all you need is a friendly nudge to help you make that leap. That’s why we’re looking for one courageous person willing to quit their current job to pursue their lifelong passion. We’ll support your decision with a $100k prize to help get your dream off the ground.

How to Apply to Prana’s Dream Job Contest

You don’t need to quit your job today in order to enter. (In fact, please don’t do that, unless you already have $100,000 lying around and were planning to make a big career change anyway. Per the contest rules: “Terminating your employment to enter this Contest is not required or requested by Sponsor and will NOT improve your chances of winning.”)

Send Prana a one- to three-minute video describing your current gig and the dream job you hope to create. The company advises applicants that they want to see “passion in action,” so be ready to show off your enthusiasm and skills. If you’re an aspiring travel blogger, show a clip from your travels; if you’re a comic book artist, share your art.

The dream job contest is open to U.S. residents aged 21 or older. Applications close on September 16, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. For more information and to apply, see Prana’s site.
