Move over Indiana Jones, it’s a new day in exploration. Today, explorers can come from all backgrounds and disciplines, and Expedition Granted is here to help fund one person’s dream expedition. Whether your passion lies in art, music, food, science, or technology, there are no limits to what area you can explore. Want your shot at $50,000 to fund the project you’ve always dreamed of? All you need is an idea that pushes boundaries and forges new territory.

To enter, submit a short video at outlining what your passion project is and why you deserve to have it granted. Submissions will be accepted until August 31, 2014. After entries are submitted, they will be posted to the projects gallery online where users can show support for the project they’d most like to see granted by liking and sharing on social media.  

Once the submission period closes, National Geographic Channel, together with its partners and advisors, will choose up to 10 finalists to be voted on by the public. Finalists will be selected based on their project’s originality, ability to make an impact on the local and/or global community, and viability.

    If i was granted an exposition I would complete my dream from when I was just 8 years old. I’m only 12 now but I would go on a cruise to Alaska. Most likely to Kodiak island. hopefully my exposition will be granted.

    I am eager about the contest because I have been working on my projects since 2008. I have been using 99percent of my own spare change. I Building on a project that is sure to impact the world for the better and impact the entire world for positive change. With so much devastation surrounding us that continues to worsen daily I need the 50k to inspire and help those awakening their senses. Thanks Nat George for funding our passions
