How to get paid to travel just for Instagramming stuff

Want to travel the continent for FREE just by snapping a few Instagrams?

Well, Netflix is now giving you the opportunity, as it hunts for three "Grammasters" who will take over the streaming giant's Instagram account, and spend 14 days flitting across North America's most scenic TV and movie locations -- like House of Cards'  DC settings -- to capture them on camera.

And while Netflix sorts out your travel arrangements, you'll get paid $2,000 a week!

To apply before the contest closes on Oct. 7, follow Netflix on Instagram, and hashtag three of your photos with #Grammaster.

Eligible candidates must have a phone with Instagram on it, and need to be a US resident over 21. It probably helps if you're also a fantastic photographer, and your pics look less like this and more like something out of one of these movies

On Oct. 9, 10 finalists for the dream job will be chosen. Three winners will be selected on Oct. 17.
