After 14 weeks of intense competition, Discovery has found its next global intern, Kaleb Anderson from New Zealand.
The 22-year-old has landed the dream internship: a gig travelling around the world for free, documenting his adventures for Discovery Channel’s social media platforms and Heaps of Stuff blog.
Hailing from Auckland, Anderson works as a gib stopper by day and freelances as a photographer/videographer. As passionate as he is about exploring the world, he is equally fuelled by the adventures that New Zealand has to offer and uses every opportunity to plan weekend road trips around the country to show his Kiwi followers the beauty and experiences they can find without having to travel too far.
Anderson’s internship will see him creating content in Japan, the USA, Germany, South Africa and Croatia, and he’ll also visit some of Discovery’s overseas headquarters during his journey. Plus he gets to take a lucky mate along for the ride.
The final five with Kaleb in the Discovery Intern competition were Andrew Cooney (22) from the Central Coast, NSW; Jeffrey Kieffer (20) from the Tweed Coast, NSW; Kate Carragher (34) from the Central Coast, NSW and Sophie Piearcey (26) from Queenstown, New Zealand.
Discovery will be offering each of the talented photographers and content makers the opportunity to contribute to Heaps of Stuff.
Now in its second year, the Discovery Intern competition searches for the best bloggers from Australia and New Zealand who are creative, love to travel and are armed with the skills to tell the story of a place through images, words and videos. After the Top 50 were announced, it was up to the public to determine the Top 5 through voting. Anderson’s submissions stood out from the start and he quickly emerged as a fan favourite.
