Airbnb is offering $100,000 to 100 people interested in designing and building the quirkiest houses possible.
The popular lodging company has launched its “$10,000,000 OMG! Fund,” which aims to “build the craziest places on earth” as part of its OMG! category.
“Creativity comes in all shapes and sizes,” the company wrote on the application page shared on its official website. “Just browse the OMG! Category and you’ll find our collection of the quirkiest homes on Airbnb. If you have a jaw-dropping idea of your own, send it our way. You might just get $100K from the OMG! Fund to put toward your offbeat build.*”
Applicants will describe their idea and, if selected, have the chance to share more details on their vision with Airbnb, which will include blueprints, video and any other necessary information by applying ahead of the company’s July 22, 2022 deadline.
The applications will be judged by four qualified experts and will be selected based on the criteria of originality, feasibility, experience and sustainability.
Airbnb also included three examples of what its looking for for its OMG! category, which includes the Big Idaho Potato Hotel hosted by Kristie; the Yellow Submarine hosted by Keith and Jen and the Retro Camping Bus hosted by Ricardo.
