Good morning from our team here in beautiful Bali. After the first ten days of the month Jonathan and I have both taken a much needed day off and we’re now ready for the final phase of The Best Dive Job in the World 2011 competition. Today marks the announcement of our previously unplanned-for second place prize.
Some weeks ago, we sat down and had a chat about all the great feedback we were getting from the entrants and their supporters in this competition. Two things became apparent during that conversation. First, this would not be a “one-off” competition, but rather we would try to offer this opportunity to someone every year. Second, we realized that there were too many great applicants to pick just one. We decided that all this great support meant that we should offer a second place internship prize as well.
Naturally, all of our fantastic Top Ten finalists are in it to win the seven months of instructor training, including equipment and materials with us here on the Island of the Gods. Well, only one person will win that prize, so please have a look at our announcement for the second place scuba diving internship being given away:
- 3-months PADI divemaster internship training (starting from any level)
- Emphasis on underwater VIDEO and PHOTO
- 3-months of single accommodation
- Lunches on diving days
- Free equipment use during the training
- Unlimited diving in Bali
- Video and Photo editing training
- Regular video, photo and text blogging on our network of sites.
This professional divemaster internship will be heavily focused on underwater photo and video – along with editing and posting. Just like in the first place prize, all the training, diving, accommodation, materials, application fees, etc. is completely free and is a big “thank-you” from our team here at Blue Season Bali for your participation in the program.
If you’re one of the Top Ten, please post here or email us if you would like to be considered for the second place prize (of course, that is, if you don’t win The Best Dive Job in the World). Jonathan and I are still poring over the awesome entries from all of you, so everything is still up in the air. One thing is sure, we have committed to publishing our decision on the 15th, and we’ll let you know both winners on that date. In the meantime, thanks once again from all of our team here at Blue Season Bali for your outstanding support for The Best Dive Job in the World 2011.
