XPrize Competition: Explore Today and Discover Tomorrow

Exploration of space, our Earth and its oceans has shaped the way we live on this planet today, and your exploration will help shape the world of tomorrow. The X Prize Foundation is a non-profit organisation that promotes innovative sollutions to some of the biggest challenges of our time.

The X Prize Foundation would like to know why you explore.
What is the meaning and impact of your exploration? Why do you explore?

Submit a video presenting your responses and be in the running to win some fantastic prizes.

Applications close 10th April, 2012

The grand prize winner will receive $10,000 to spend on a National Geographic Expedition of their choosing. There are more than 40 trips available, including expeditions ranging from the icy chill of Antarctica to the tropics of the Amazon and the high altitudes of the Himalayan Mountains. If you win, the choice is yours! So submit your exploration video and ask yourself, "Where will I explore next?"

Three finalists will each receive an adventurous flight with Airship Ventures in California. Imagine floating serenely on a cloud, sailing the skies at 1,200 feet, taking in the spectacular scenery of the world below, enjoying the sweeping vistas of spectacular scenery through a 360-degree view...all this can be yours, if you tell an Exploration story. Don't miss out on your chance to see the world we live in from a whole new perspective!
