WildChina has recently announced the launch of its 2013 WildChina Explorer Grant contest. A prize of US$3,000 will be up for grabs for anyone who has the ideas and the thirst for an original expedition in China.
Now into its third year, the WildChina Explorer Grant was created to encourage others to design and pursue groundbreaking explorations of their own. It was inspired by WildChina founder Zhang Mei’s own journey to the top of Tibet’s Mount Kailash.
In 2011, the WildChina Explorer Grant was awarded to Jeff Fuchs for his retracing of the Ancient Salt Route in Qinghai. In 2012, there were two winners: Shanghua Zhang, who has since returned from his expedition to Garze Prefecture in Sichuan Province; and William Bleisch and Yan Lu, who will be heading out to Yunnan’s Ailao Shan later this year.
This year’s contestants will be required to submit a 90 second video explaining their idea and why it represents exploration to them. Applications will be accepted until November 16th by 5:00 PM EST (6:00 AM the following day Hong Kong/Singapore Time).
