If you've always dreamed of travelling the world for free, then this could be just the job opportunity for you.

The Discovery Channel is searching for its next Global Intern to follow in the footsteps of 26-year-old Aucklander Ben Mikha, who beat ten thousand entrants to take out the inaugural search earlier this year.

The lucky winner will be someone who's adventurous, creative, loves to travel, and is armed with the skills to tell the story of a place through images, words and videos โ€“ and you can take a friend along for the ride.

The internship is a global adventure through five countries โ€“ Japan, the USA, Germany, South Africa and Croatia โ€“ with reports posted on the Discovery Channel's social platforms and blog, Heaps of Stuff.


To enter, upload a 30-60 second video to YouTube or Vimeo that shows why you should be jetting around the globe as the Discovery Intern. Along with your video, submit a photo from an adventure you've had (at home or abroad) with an accompanying caption on what made it memorable.

Entries are open until Sunday 17 December. Discovery will then choose 100 finalists who will be up for a public vote to determine who moves to the next round.
