Event Details

Hidden Compass presents the Pathfinder Prize, which offers $15,000 in funding for a team of creative modern explorers to embark on a journey of discovery and share their findings with the world. Proposals will be accepted from now until July 20, 2023. The Pathfinder Prize honors the tradition of exploration societies that funded grand expeditions in the past. However, the prize places a new emphasis on curiosity rather than conquest. The winners of the 2023 Pathfinder Prize are currently on an expedition to Greenland.

After the finalists are selected, expedition teams will pitch their proposals to Allies, members of Hidden Compass’s modern exploration society, The Alliance. Allies will then vote to decide the winner, who will be announced at Hidden Compass’s Ethos of Exploration Event in late 2023.
