Have you ever dreamed of being selected for a creative expedition to a remote island paradise? We believe Dominica is the perfect setting for such an exotic island adventure and are currently searching for teams of aspiring photographers, filmmakers, and story tellers to come experience the island first-hand. Document your adventure and share it with the world.
We are the island nation of Dominica, in the West Indies.
Known as “The Nature Island,” Dominica’s tropical rain forests cover two thirds of our island, and are home to 1,200 plant species. Rivers, lakes, streams, hot springs, and waterfalls abound – fed by our island’s high annual rainfall and tropical location. Our volcanic physique points to extensive geothermal activity – even underwater. The Morne Trois Pitons National Park was the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Eastern Caribbean.
We are a small, but very proud and happy nation. Our island is sparsely populated with only 70,000 people inhabiting our 289 square miles.
We invite you to come experience the true wonders of nature. Hike from the tip of the water’s edge to the highest peak on the island and declare your renewed love for life. Challenge your body, mind, and spirit to let go of the outside world and allow itself to be transformed.
We believe in the power of film and photography to tell our story. We could easily tell the entire world the story of Dominica from our own perspective, but we would rather give you the opportunity for you to tell it from yours. Armed with nothing more than a camera and some simple equipment, we invite you to take part in the challenge to tell a story about Dominica.
Our island served as the backdrop for two of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies. Our lush jungles, unspoiled beaches, and tropical climate were the perfect location to tell this Hollywood story. But now we’re looking for something different. We’re looking for a more personal story.
We are currently conducting a worldwide search to find six (6) teams of two (2) adventurous people to come to Dominica for a week and help us tell our story … with your words and pictures. We are offering round-trip airfare, accommodations, meals, trail guides, and one of the most beautiful and inspiring characters in the world for aspiring filmmakers, photographers, and storytellers – our island.
Once on the island, the teams will be given an introduction to the island, our culture, history, and people. We will outfit you with an understanding of all the major highlights and be on-hand to help you plan your adventure. We supply all permits and access you need in order to create something wonderful. How and what you create is entirely up to you.
We only have one simple request – you must document your journey in discovering your inner explorer in a short film, photography project, travelogue, or some other creative social media program. That’s it. Share it with Dominica, and publish it to your network of fans and followers.
