The aim of the Media Program is to raise the profile of the Australian Antarctic Program, including scientific research and operations in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean region.
Preference will be given to media representatives whose reporting reaches a broad audience through multiple media channels.
The successful applicants will work with the Antarctic Division media team to refine their project once logistics and science projects for the summer season are finalised.
Given the complexity of planning projects in Antarctica, applicants need to be very flexible. Successful applicants will be notified in July.
