The Antarctica New Zealand Community Engagement Programme (formerly the Media Programme and Artists and Writers Programme) plays a crucial part in informing and influencing the public's understanding towards the science and operations in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.

This programme encourages media, artists, teachers and writers proposals of the highest quality. The number of opportunities for travel to Antarctica are limited and varies each year with strong competition. They are interested in applications with new and fresh ideas which aim to capture their target audiences. We want applicants to demonstrate their outreach ability and we will reward those who can demonstrate a genuine interest in Antarctica and the environment.

They welcome applications from people/ organisations who share their values, who understand the importance of the science New Zealand supports in Antarctica and are passionate about communicating this message to New Zealand stakeholders and communities.
