Could National Geographic’s Next Great Explorer be you?


Do you dream of exploring uncharted territory?

Have burning ambition to forge a new path?

Want to show the world something exquisitely unique?

Then check out National Geographic’s Expedition Granted. It’s aimed at potential 21st century explorers with big dreams and ideas and a burning desire to turn these dreams and ideas into actual expeditions and projects.

It’s an amazing opportunity for anyone interested in forging new paths, discovering new things, and willing to push boundaries.

The winner will get $50,000 to fund their dream project.

And unlike days of old, when people equated expeditions to climbing mountains, with Expedition Granted National Geographic is hoping to encourage new explorers from all backgrounds and disciplines to compete.

To enter follow these three simple steps and you’ll be on your way:

  • Record a short 2-minute or less video explaining your big idea and why you should get your expedition granted.
  • Upload the video and answer some questions to create your own project page.
  • Share your project with your friends to get their support.

Once your entry is submitted, it will be displayed on the main site where anyone can see it and fans can like and share their favorites via social media sites.

Submissions will be accepted until August 31, 2014

National Geographic Channel, together with its partners and advisors, will then take a few weeks to choose up to 10 finalists, selected primarily for their project’s originality, viability, and ability to make an impact on the local and/or global community.

The finalists will be announced on September 16th and then the public will be able to vote from then until September 29th.

And on September 30th National Geographic will announce the 2014 winner of Expedition Granted!


Then why not take a risk and put your idea out there.

After all, you never know where it might take you.
