A seaside resort in Turkey is looking for a Chief Instagram Officer. Job requirements of the CIO at the Hillside Beach Club: lounge around the resort snapping gorgeous photos and updating the hotel's Instagram feed.

And because no one person should be allowed to own this @JobAtHeavenOnEarth, as the hotel calls it, the CIO title will go to six separate people who will stay at the resort for free for one week each.

Must-snap selfies? There's the resort's three beaches including Silent and Serenity beaches, both for adults only; three restaurants; a waterfront pool; four bars, including one pool bar and one beach bar; and a spa. The hotel is in the seaside town of Fethiye, about 60 minutes from the Dalaman International airport.

Hillside Beach Club isn't the only hotel running an Instagram contest that results in a free hotel stay. Four Seasons Hotel New York launched an Instagram contest #FSNYSummerLove Photo Contest, this week in conjunction with vacation photography company Flytographer.

Hopefuls must follow @FSNewYork and @FlytographerInsta and Instagram photos based on a weekly theme. Weekly winners get dinner for two at the Garden Restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel New York; those winners are then eligible to win a two-night stay at the luxury property. The contest runs until August 25.

Chief Instagram Officer wannabes should apply via Instagram by posting their best beach photo before June 15. Use @hillsidebeachclub and #jobatheavenonearth with your photo.
