Alternate title: why you should vote for my entry in the Splendour in the Grass PIC ME! competition.
Alternate alternate title: what’s the point of having a blog if I can’t use it for a little self promotion?
Because this year’s ticket prices are ludicrous, and I will be poor from my travels overseas, this year I will not be attending Splendour in the Grass a.k.a. my festival nirvana. However, all is not lost as I have decided to try my luck in their PIC ME! competition. All that was required was for contestants to submit photographs from past Splendours. The prize is a double event camping pass to this year’s festival *jaw drop*. If you cast your memories back to August last year you may recall my colourful documentation of three days of festival shenanigans. So I submitted a few photos and am now vying for votes. Your votes, to be precise.
What’s in it for you, you ask? Well… tangibly… nothing. You’ll be voting out of the kindness of your hearts and with the knowledge that you’re helping one girl’s dream of seeing Kanye and Pulp in the flesh come true. And for that you’ll have my deepest gratitude. If I do win (unlikely but one can always dream), you’ll also get to live vicariously through my Splendour adventures. If last year is anything to go by, I’ll bring more tales of impractical camping gear, mosh pit insanity, fan-girling out on unsuspecting musicians, and desperate trespassing escapades. And to top it all off, this year I will be delirious after stepping off a 24 hour flight (the camp ground opens on a Wednesday. I fly in Wednesday night. The festival starts on Friday). The results will be hilarious, trust me.
To vote, all you need is a Facebook account and an affinity for clicking ‘like’ buttons. Once a day*. Until May 27. The five entries with the most votes will then be judged by a panel of Splendour aficionados. So, troops, let’s get me to the top 5 and make this happen!
