Four months of very hard work is almost to an end and sitting from my desk I can feel the anxiety out there. I actually prefer getting wet but you have all been keeping me busy every day by your constant applications, blogging, comments, posts, emails and what have you.
So firstly, a huge well done to everyone who has participated in any way to this competition – I never really thought it was going to be such a success. But it has been and that is down to all of you for embracing this opportunity.
The hardest part starts in 855 minutes as we will stop receiving applications and start to work out who deserves to become a PADI Instructor. I can hear you all shouting ” I do” , and I am sure that many of you deserve this but as always, there can be only one winner.
So let me explain what is going to happen at midnight tonight (Bali time).
First, we are not going to accept any more applications – even if you bribe me with….well, we won’t go there. Midnight is the deadline!
From tomorrow, 1st March, we will start to post the ten finalist for the competition. Every day I will post one of the finalists so that by the 10th March we will know exactly who the top ten are. The finalists will not be posted in any particular order, so if you get posted first, or last, it makes absolutely no difference at all.
During these ten days you are still welcome to gain support for your entry; our minds won’t be totally made up for the final ten until the last day.
If you are then one of the finalists you have a few days to persuade us that you are the best person to win this prize.
On the 15th March Blue Season Bali will announce the winner of the Best Dive Job in the World – get in!
