Media Application


This application closes 22 July 2022. Applications will be reviewed as received and approvals will be done in waves, so we recommend that you apply as soon as possible if interested.

AdventureNEXT gives attending media the opportunity to discover the unique natural and cultural resources and activities in a specific region. Selected official media delegates will learn about the region through immersive adventure tours and connections with regional suppliers at Marketplace, as well as find inspiration in learning about the value and development of adventure travel through speakers and workshops at the event.

The final selected hosted official media delegates will receive: complimentary event registration, accommodations during the event, economy round-trip air, airport transfers, a Pre-Adventure and a Day of Adventure tour at no cost. Hosted media delegates are required to participate in a multi-day pre-adventure tour.


If selected, the entire trip length will vary in duration up to twelve days depending on the final selection of Pre-Adventure tour options (5-7 days in length) plus the travel time from your origin city. Tour options will be made available after applications are selected. The event itself is from 12-14 September (including Day of Adventure) with a Rewilding adventure on 15 September. Due to flight schedules, departures from Santiago de Chile will be on 16 September 2022 (transport and accommodations will be hosted on the 15th).

Who should apply:

The ATTA and our hosts are seeking eight (8) hosted media delegates and are considering media based in (or writing for the markets of):

  • Australia
  • France
  • Germany
  • Spain
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

who have an active interest in creating and publishing content about adventure and sustainable travel in Chile.

Applications will be considered and reviewed with the destination partner, with the goal to host a diverse group of media who specialize in adventure and sustainable travel stories, including:

  • Freelance Journalists with a proven record of placing articles in mainstream lifestyle outlets or verticals focusing on travel, outdoor adventure, fitness, culture, or environment/sustainability with national and global reach (print and digital).
  • Magazine, Newspaper, or Digital Staff Writers & Editors especially from mainstream lifestyle outlets and/or vertical outlets focusing on travel, outdoor adventure, culture or environment/sustainability with national and global reach. 
  • Travel Content Creators (Influencers/Bloggers) with evidence of regular, current editorial content (i.e. non-sponsored posts) related to adventure travel, outdoor activity, culture, or environmental/sustainability issues with a large, dedicated, and engaged following interested in adventure travel-related content (limited spots).
  • Broadcast Journalists & Producers whose content is broadcast on TV, radio, or podcast and is related to the adventure travel or outdoor industry (this event is not an ideal fit for strictly on-camera talent due to very limited filming opportunities).

Publishers, advertising sales representatives, personal or hobby bloggers, PR agency representatives, marketing agencies/content developers, and film/video producers are not eligible to apply as an official media delegate.

Role and expectations if your application is selected:

Official media delegates are expected to be “working media” meaning whether a freelance journalist, editor, or travel content creator, you will be actively looking for ways to cover the host destination, the adventure travel industry, and attending delegate’s destinations and products.

In addition, all official media delegates are:

  • Required to attend the Marketplace session during the event, designed to give you more story ideas and connections.
  • Expected to attend the FULL event (all conference days).
  • Expected to publish something about your experience on adventures. 
  • Required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination and obtain their own travel insurance policy for the trip.

  • Final selections will be made from the pool of applications received.
  • All applications will be considered, reviewed, and selected with the destination partner.
  • A cross-set of criteria is used in the application evaluation and selection process to curate a final selection of media that represent the specific countries listed above (limited per country) and a variety of narratives, outlets, and topics related to adventure travel. 
  • Due to the limited number of official media delegate spots and the large quantity of applications typically received, not all qualified applications will be selected.
  • You will receive an email from ATTA informing you of the status of your application.
