Antarctica21 turns 20 in 2023 and to celebrate its birthday and promote knowledge and understanding of Antarctica and Antarctic penguins, it is searching for penguin lovers around the globe.

From 24 January to 17 March, 2023, they can apply to be Antarctica21’s chief flying penguin officer and win a free trip.

“Twenty years ago, we introduced an innovative way of traveling to Antarctica,” Jaime Vasquez, Antarctica21’s president, said.

“With a two-hour flight from the tip of South America, visitors can reach the White Continent quickly and in comfort, saving the two-day ship crossing over the rough waters of the Drake Passage.

“To celebrate our anniversary this year, we are giving one lucky person a chance to win a trip to Antarctica and share in our passion for the continent.”

From all qualified entries, Antarctica21 will randomly select one lucky person to travel free of charge to the White Continent on board the Ocean Nova expedition ship. Travel will be on the 7-14 December, 2023, on the classic Antarctica air-cruise in a Single Cabin – which is valued at US$17,795 (AU$25,250). The prize includes the round-trip flight between Punta Arenas, Chile, and Antarctica; five nights of accommodations on the ship with full board; all guided zodiac and shore excursions in Antarctica; two nights of lodging in Punta Arenas pre- and post-expedition; and more.

Responsibilities of the chief flying penguin officer include traveling to Punta Arenas to join the expedition, attending shipboard presentations by polar wildlife experts, and exploring Antarctica on land and sea to learn first-hand about penguins and their habitat. The polar plunge is optional, but highly recommended.

To apply to be the chief flying penguin officer, download the Antarctic Penguin Study Guide to learn about penguins, then fill out the entry form, answering the three questions about penguins correctly. The winner will be selected from all entries with correct answers and will be announced on 17 March, 2023. Participants must be 18 years of age or older to enter.
