VUKA AWARDS DEADLINE EXTENDED (article first published : 2006-09-23)

Entries for the annual MultiChoice VUKA! Awards are coming in from around South Africa and, as usual, they are controversial, at times off-the-wall, sometimes inspirational and never boring.

Professionals and students alike have taken up the challenge to make unforgettable public service announcements (PSA’s) which have a huge impact for the charities or cause on which they focus. The organisers have responded to requests by filmmakers to extend the MultiChoice VUKA! deadline entries. The deadline is now October 14, 2006.

Industry goodwill underpins the huge success of the MultiChoice VUKA! Awards. MultiChoice has donated over R70m worth of airtime to screen the ads on its DStv channels since the inception of the awards, and the film and advertising industry donating an estimated R10m per annum in facilities and personal expertise. Most filmmakers who embark on making a MultiChoice VUKA! apply for direct assistance from production and facility houses in the form of rebates or sponsorships, and from professional producers, in the form of their time and intellectual support.

Entry forms are still available from http://vuka.multichoice.co.za or from most major industry suppliers and post-production facilities. Contact Candice or Vauldi on 011 804 2552 or email vuka@thebomb.co.za

Winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held in November 2006.
