Are you a keen environmentalist? Love to travel? Then Air New Zealand has the perfect job for you - spending two unforgettable weeks in Antarctica.

An opportunity like this only comes along once-in-a-lifetime.

‘Antarctica: No Ordinary Place, No Ordinary Assignment’ will see one winner fly to Antarctica NZ’s Christchurch headquarters to team up with National Geographic photographer Jason Edwards, before flying south for two weeks on the frozen continent.

Australian, Jason Edwards, an environmental enthusiast himself, will accompany the winner for the whole journey, capturing the adventure via photography and blogs and tweets from the ice.

Air New Zealand CEO Christopher Luxon says the successful candidate will not only live at New Zealand's Scott Base research support station in one of the most fragile and special places on earth, they will also help draw worldwide attention to global environmental issues and the scientific research underway in Antarctica to address these.
