Why do you prize exploration?

by Braden Kelley

It is by exploring the frontiers of our natural world that we challenge ourselves and discover new knowledge and wonders that will benefit us all. If you are an explorer, Shell and the X PRIZE Foundation want to know why you do it and the meaning and impact of your exploration. They invite you to create a video that expresses your passions and illustrates your pursuits. Please join the X PRIZE Foundation as they delve deeper into the mysteries and beauty of our world and our universe. Upload your video and inspire us; why do you prize exploration?

The X PRIZE Foundation wants to spread the word about the importance of exploration in today’s world. As humanity faces an increasing number of challenges, it has become increasingly important to explore the boundaries of our knowledge, and to uncover innovative new ways of thinking about our planet and ourselves.

Shell and the X PRIZE Foundation invite you to upload a video about why you prize exploration. What drives you? Where do you explore? What do you hope to achieve?

There are four prizes up for grabs worth over $10,000 in the video contest sponsored by Shell and the X PRIZE Foundation.

The grand prize winner (1) 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.

Three semi-finalists (3) 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…

Why not contribute a video using the assets available to you, or create your own, and help the X PRIZE Foundation spread the word on the role and importance of exploration.
