Fiverr and Selina, a co-working and traveling hospitality service, are launching the Work From Anywhere contest that will run for three weeks. Candidates can apply from August 11th through September 1st. This is a platform that connects businesses with on-demand freelance talent offering digital services. 

Fiverr freelancers across the world can submit for the chance to win $2,000 in cash vouchers for travel expenses from Fiverr, as well as 250,000 Selina tokens (equivalent to $2,000 USD) to use towards Selina accommodations, wellness activities, and hot-desk access.

During their stay, the winners of the contest will also be documenting and sharing their experience as an Anywhere Worker with the world. 

According to the companies, the purpose of the partnership is to provide Anywhere Workers (people who work remotely while traveling from at least two locations, domestic or international, throughout the year), the opportunity to find community and connect with like-minded individuals during their travels. 

The partnership with Selina also includes the ability for these workers to connect through in-person events and meetups as a means to combat one of the key issues they face: loneliness. Additionally, Fiverr will be launching its Work from Anywhere contest, where ten Fiverr freelancers will be selected to stay at a Selina location of their choosing for 3 to 4 weeks.

“While being an Anywhere Worker has numerous benefits including having autonomy and flexibility over one’s worklife, it still has its challenges such as lack of community and a sense of belonging,” said Gali Arnon, Chief Marketing Officer at Fiverr in a press release.

 “Together, through a variety of different engagement mechanisms, it’s our goal to bring this Anywhere Worker community together to learn, to grow and to ultimately thrive,” Arnon added.

 The partnership with Fiverr will give the platform’s community members special access to Selina around the world. 

“Our active global coworking community has shown us that remote work does not have to be isolating, and we are thrilled to be partnering with Fiverr and welcoming their anywhere workers into our network of 100+ destinations worldwide. The Selina experience is carefully designed to bring a sense of community to today’s digital nomad, travelers, and locals alike. Together, by leveraging our platforms and bringing together our communities, we hope to show how building connection through travel creates a sense of community and fulfillment.”

In a recent Fiverr survey with Lonely Planet, it was revealed that 90% of Anywhere Workers experience loneliness while living this lifestyle. This shows that while the combined “work and travel” trend has continued to grow, there remain challenges among this growing segment of the workforce.  Recently, Travel Noire reported 7 must-have items to work from anywhere.
