Greetings Sailesh!

We were very happy you shared our Mental Health Film Competition on your blog in February! We got some good quality visitors to our website that were referred from your blog. I can also tell you we received many great submissions for the first competition ending March 31st from all over the world which are currently being judged by our exceptional jury. But that was just the first competition, and the new competition started on April 1st with a deadline of May 1st for submissions. All of the info and links for the competition are the same. We would love it if you could announce the new edition on the contest on facebook and twitter again, and perhaps even a short mention on the blog talking about the success of the first competition and introducing the new one. Thanks again so much for doing your part to help raise awareness around this important issue!

Best,
