Fancy a trip to Antarctica with Air New Zealand?

Antarctica-penguinWho wouldn’t love to meet one of these cute little guys close up in his own natural habitat!?

I know I would!

I found out about this competition from Air New Zealand that will give one person the opportunity to go on assignment to Antarctica (one of my life-goals btw) to observe and help document what’s happening with the environment and how it’s affecting (and being affected by) the rest of the world.

I think we are all responsible for what’s happening even if we can’t directly see it ourselves.
Observing the wildlife and just being in the wilderness amongst these amazing frozen landscapes would be a life-changing event for me.

Not only that, but the winner will be travelling alongside Nat Geo photographer Jason Edwards on the trip. This alone is a prize any nature photographer would give an arm and a leg for I’m sure!

This could be really good fun, not only the expedition itself but coming up with an entry to the competition is going to be “interesting” just in itself.

To enter we have to pick a short pre-recorded video  and put our own voiceover/soundtrack to it! I think this part we’re gonna have to think outside the box a little and have some fun with it!

To get you in the mood and give you a little taste of what you’re in for, hit play on the video below or go here:


Not only is this a great chance for our own personal reasons, but also to be able to contribute in some small way to this research would be extraordinary.
Here are a couple more photos of what you’ve got to look forward to if you win.
Good Luck all! 🙂
