Posted:Is there any chance of getting more details of the competition?

I see in the article that the prizes are mentioned, but no indication on what the competition is actually being judged on.

Also, how is the winner being selected? Drawn randomly? Chosen by certain people?

I'm guessing that 'fire arts' embodies any 'fire manipulation' that isn't eating or breathing?

Sorry if I'm asking too many stupid/annoying questions...

Anyway, First prize is $2000 USD, AND $1000 USD credit on the HoP account! That's an awful lot of stuff... biggrin Sure is a big incentive for me to get my thinking hat on...

Let the COL2006 discussion commence!!

Posted:we here in the philippines have fire pois spinning in our stomachs!

this will be the first time that we'll be showing you guys, the poi community we respect so much, what we have been doing over here for the last two years.

our video is currently being edited (shall be shipped to NZ by the day after tomorrow *bites fingernails*) and though i know that there are a lot of far more skilled and experienced members submitting videos (which we LOOOVE to watch!) you can't deny the love and passion we have for this art! and there is always next year wink

keep the fire going! good luck everyone!

Posted:I got my entry as well as RHD's entry for this competition done today. So I'll send them tomorrow morning. It was a lot of work but worth it. Hardest part was to squeeze everything to 3 minutes.............. but also with my solo video it gave me new ideas when having to cut a 4 minute routine to a 3 minute video and changing the music for it. It's like a whole new routine in a way... You'll know what I mean if it gets on the compilation.

So who else has sent in a video???!!?!? Complete list here, please, thank you...

Posted:I may have sent one in... I certainly had one filmed, but regrettably left it with a hippy to edit and suchlike wink

On the plus side, I feel Ive improved heaps since filming it and have settled down more stylisitically so this may be a good thing.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Did think about entering but I know that I'm not at the level I feel is worthy for a submission, so maybe next year....

Tim.. if u haven't found out yet then Meast is a spinner from Paris. Amazing stuff.

I hope my vids came through.. Sent them from Estonia on the final day. And the post office was a weird experience.

Anyway.. When can we see a list of all the entries made?

Posted:Hi Antti,
It was a lovely surprise meeting you in Helsinki. Although I do regret not learning a move or two from you. How was Singapore? I look forward to seeing your entry. And I really want to see list of the finalists. However, the contest only closed a month ago and Malcolm probably has a lot of videos to see and choose.
I got my video in. it's black light poi.

Posted:Hey Linda.. It was a nice suprise indeed..

Yeah I know it's been only a month. I was hoping for the list of entries sent for the competition not the list of vids that made it to dvd.. If I remember right there was one for col5.. I could be wrong.
