Discovery Intern

The search is on for the next Discovery Intern

Shout out to all the travel junkies and adventure seekers. Discovery wants you to see the world – on us! The search is on for the next Discovery Intern; a lucky blogger who’ll score the ultimate internship and a once-in-a-lifetime overseas adventure. Plus, we’re letting you take a buddy along for the ride!


Are you consumed by wanderlust but don’t necessarily have the cash to fund your nomadic lifestyle? Consider yourself a bit of a hot content maker? Well, you could be the next Discovery Intern! We’re looking for someone who’s adventurous, creative and loves to travel, and is armed with the skills to tell the story of a place through images, words and videos.

Our Discovery Intern will head off on a global adventure, hitting five countries to tour awesome destinations and blog about the trip on Discovery Channel’s social platforms and blog, Heaps Of Stuff. Their overseas jaunt will take in Japan, USA, Germany, South Africa and Croatia, plus the winner will also visit some of Discovery’s overseas headquarters. And this time around, you can choose to take a mate and we’ll foot the bill!

Also included in the prize will be a Nikon D7500 & 18-140mm kit!

If you think you have what it takes to be the next Discovery Intern, then show us (along with the rest of Australia) why you’re the best person for the job at Entries are open NOW.

To enter, submit a photo from an adventure you’ve had (at home or abroad) with an accompanying caption on what made it memorable. You also have the option of uploading a 30-60 second video that shows us why you should be jetting around the globe as the Discovery Intern – get as creative as you like. You have 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.

Earlier this year, 26-year-old Kiwi, Ben Mikha beat ten thousand entrants to take out the inaugural search. As the Discovery Intern, he travelled to Singapore, New York, Los Angeles, Washington DC, London, Iceland and Italy. But his journey with us didn’t end there; the highly creative photographer/videographer is still a contributor for Discovery.

At its core, the company is dedicated to satisfying curiosity and our Discovery Intern will put this into action.
