Hey all, as mentioned in my last blog, I was to post an update of my progress regarding the Intel, W Hotel, Vice short film story competition this week (yesterday). However, while I was perusing their competition details to see if there was any specific criteria I would have to follow, I was greeted by this following statement…and yes it was in All Caps as you see it
” THE COMPETITION IS OPEN TO LEGAL RESIDENTS OF AUSTRALIA, CANADA, MAINLAND CHINA, FRANCE, HONG KONG, GERMANY, MEXICO, SINGAPORE, THE UNITED KINGDOM, AND THE UNITED STATES WHO ARE AT LEAST EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER (OR THE APPLICABLE AGE OF MAJORITY IN HIS/HER JURISDICTION OF RESIDENCE, BUT IN ANY EVENT NO YOUNGER THAN EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OF AGE) ON THE DATE OF ENTRY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW. “
As a legal resident of South Africa, my entry would be null and void and therefore there is no point in entering the competition. Nonetheless, this does not necessarily prevent me from writing the would be story out anyway and posting it here on my blog as a personal work. Sure there would be excitement waiting anxiously for results to return and spending nights up on roof tops gazing out at the starry sky while the mind envisions a production set with props and actors and actresses reciting words that you wrote, dressed in attire that you prescribed, making real what was on paper….
Anyway to all those who were supporting me on this endeavour, I appreciate your support greatly and therefore will finish the challenge, post it here and then you can be the judges.
