Media Application

This application closes on 16 September 2022. Applications will be reviewed in September and final selections will be made by early October.

Thank you for your interest in applying to be considered as one of two media at AdventureWeek Ecuador 2022. 

AdventureWeek 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 Ecuador 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.


If selected, the entire trip length will be 7 (seven) days, from 13-19 November (including arrival and departure days). 

Who should apply:

The ATTA and our hosts are seeking two (2) media delegates specifically based in (and/or with majority audience in):

  • Canada
  • United States

who specialize in adventure and sustainable travel stories, including:

  • Broadcast Journalists & Producers whose content is broadcast on TV or radio 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).
  • Freelance Journalists with a proven record of placing articles in mainstream lifestyle outlets or verticals focusing on travel, outdoor adventure, wellness, 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, wellness, 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, wellness, culture, or environmental/sustainability issues with a large, dedicated, and engaged following interested in adventure travel-related content (limited spots).

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 you are selected:

You will be participating as “working media,” experiencing adventures and researching multiple stories for future publications. If you are selected to attend, we will expect resulting publications, and we track all media results from our events. You will be expected to be active on social media before, during, and after the trip (as connectivity is available) to share your experience and the destination. Event hashtags will be sent ahead of the event and you are expected to use the proper tags to make event publicity tracking possible. 

In addition, Official Media Delegates are:

  • Required to attend the Marketplace session, designed to give you more story ideas and connections. 
  • Expected to attend the FULL event (all activities in the itinerary).
  • Required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination. 

The selected media will be fully-hosted, with the costs of activities, flights, accommodations, meals, and ground transfer in-country covered by the hosts. 


  • Hosted media and discounted media 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 evaluation process to result in a final curation of the small group representing the specific countries listed above. 
  • Due to the extremely limited number of official media delegate spots and the large number of applications typically received, not all qualified applications will be selected.
  • You will receive an email from the ATTA informing you of the status of your application.
  • More questions? See our Official Media at ATTA Events FAQs
