National Geographic launches contest to search for digital correspondent [US]

Posted on November 22, 2016

Deadline: 

December 20, 2016

Individuals ages 21 and older can enter this contest.

National Geographic is launching "Assignment: Explorer," a nationwide search for a digital correspondent with a unique point of view to bring content to its digital audience. 

The digital correspondent will travel around the world and share stories in his or her in-the-field segments for its social channels. This is a paid position.

Candidates must pick a topic and create a 2-minute video report that showcases their skills. The topics are: 1- If you could explore outer space or the depths of the earth's oceans, which would you choose - and why? 2- Who or what is interesting in your town? How has this helped shape your point of view? And 3- What's next in culture, business or science that could forever alter our lives?

Finalists will be invited to New York to participate in the three-day final round.

The deadline to submit a video is Dec. 20.
