Awhile back, Air New Zealand launched a new campaign entitled Antarctica: No Ordinary Place, No Ordinary Assignment. The plan was to find a couple of lucky folks who were interested in traveling to the Antarctic to document that not only the beauty of that place, but also the threats to the natural environment there. After running an online contest, the airlines selected student filmmaker Marli Lopez-Hope and outdoor enthusiast Michael Armstrong to be their representatives.
The results can be seen in the excellent video below, which gives us a look at their adventure on the frozen continent. It also makes me insanely jealous, but that is an entirely different matter. Enjoy the video!
