THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED.

We are looking for a photographer to explore Iceland in a 4×4 and capture images of the Northern Lights for use across our website and social media.

You don’t need to be a professional photographer to apply, just someone with a passion for travel and telling stories through imagery and video.

The successful applicant will get the opportunity to drive around Iceland for a week in a rental 4×4 car that will be completely free of charge. Here, you can experience the land of fire and ice, plus you will be paid 35,000 ISK (around £200) for your time and effort. 

During the week, you’ll be free to explore Iceland as you please – visit the natural phenomena of geysers and hot springs, drive the Golden Circle to learn about the country’s history, see the volcanoes and glaciers that create a landscape that is like nowhere else on Earth.

The main focus of the trip though is to watch the Northern Lights dance across the sky, or aurora borealis as they’re officially known, and capture the beautiful waves of light on camera. Therefore, the trip will take place during April 2022, when the night skies are dark enough to see the phenomenon. 

We are very excited to offer this incredible opportunity for someone to explore one of the world’s most beautiful countries and hone their photography skills by capturing images and videos that will help to showcase the once-in-a-lifetime experiences that Iceland offers to travellers.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to be our Northern Lights photographer, read on below for everything you need to know and how to apply.
