Manitoba Festival Explorer

Cool gig alert! Travel Manitoba is looking for Manitoba's next Festival Explorer. Your task? To explore Manitoba's festivals and cover all the action on Travel Manitoba's Instagram Stories and Facebook Live - aka, the best gig ever!

WHO we're looking for:

An outgoing festival enthusiast who's great behind and in front of the camera

WHAT you will be doing:

Attend festivals throughout the year and provide awesome coverage on our Instagram Stories and Facebook Live. The Manitoba Festival Explorer will be able to grab great footage while also being comfortable with getting in front of the camera to talk about what's going on. There is no video editing or homework required, as all the content will be created LIVE at the event.

WHEN/WHERE you will be going:

Festival du Voyageur (February 16 to 25), Manitoba Summer Fair (June 6 to 10), Icelandic Festival of Manitoba (August 3 to 5), City of Morden (Festival TBD), Red River Ex (June 15 to 24), Carman Country Fair (July 12 to 14), Eriksdale Creamery Days (August 17 to 19).


$2000 + mileage + food credits + entry to each festival for you and a friend

HOW to enter:

From now until January 16, send us your video (YouTube link preferred) showing us why you should be Manitoba's Festival Explorer. Get creative – show us some of your work, or just film yourself telling us about some of your favourite festivals. Editing isn't important here as the content will be created on the spot at each event. Video creators of all levels are welcome! Interviews will take place between January 17 and 26, with the Manitoba Festival Explorer being selected and contacted by January 29.


The Manitoba Festival Explorer will be required to attend 4-8 hours of each festival (subject to change), TBD by Travel Manitoba. Participants must be 18+ and have a valid driver's license. Travel Manitoba reserves the right to withdraw the position at any time or in the event that no acceptable entries are received.
