The winning entry will be drawn at 11am.

The winner and his/her companion will immediately be whisked away to a waiting car that will transport them to Vancouver International Airport (YVR), where they will check in for their Air France flight in Economy class and then be escorted to the Air France dedicated zone of the Premium Plaza lounge before departing.

The prize also includes 4 overnights and breakfasts at the five-star Napoleon Champs Elysées Hotel, as well as limousine transfers from Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport.
