Normally, I wouldn’t post something with a deadline finishing the next day, but this opportunity is just too good to pass up…
If you’re reading Eco Traveller Guide, it’s safe to say you must be passionate about the environment and travel, and are probably a bit of a National Geographic fan, too.
Now imagine being able to go to one of the most wonderful wildernesses on Earth, with your very own Nat Geo photographer and explorer. Sounds pretty amazing, doesn’t it?
Antarctica: No Ordinary Place, No Ordinary Assignment is a partnership between Air New Zealand, Antarctica New Zealand, the New Zealand Antarctic Research Institute and National Geographic Channel. Together, this impressive coalition are offering one budding explorer the once-in-a-lifetime experience of travelling to Antarctica’s Scott Base research support station alongside National Geographic photographer Jason Edwards.
The winner will spend two weeks on assignment getting involved in research at the station, capturing the adventure via photography, blog posts and tweets from the ice.
Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Christopher Luxon says,
“The best suited candidate will have a passion for the environment and want to play a role in building awareness of the efforts we all need to make to better protect the world we live in. Strong communication skills are a must along with a healthy respect for the difficult operating conditions in Antarctica.”
Deadline for entries is Thursday 7 November 2013 at 5pm NZT.
I know it’s not even 24 hours, but if you’re anything like me, you’ll make it with just a few seconds to spare.
