Midlands video competition

2015-01-29 00:00

PEOPLE have taken to social media networks sharing their meandering moments for a chance to win an epic weekend in the Midlands.

From “Hollywoodesque” to minimalist YouTube videos, to picturesque Instagrams, #mymidlands­meander has seen a great response from entrants since its launch on December 15, 2014. General manager of Midlands Meander Ingrid Andersen said: “It’s the biggest social media competition that the Midlands Meander has ever undertaken.”

Entrants Mohamed Ebrahim, Mobeen Osman and Farha Vaizie shared their story of how they ­entered. Vaizie said: “I posted a ­picture of us standing at the bottom of the [Howick] Falls on Instagram, and Midlands Meander commented and asked me to enter the competition. I then asked Mohamed to create a ­video.”

The winner will receive a weekend getaway worth R25 000. To enter, check the prizes and share your Midlands moments with #mymidlands­meander on Instagram and YouTube. Submit your video before Saturday. The top 10 videos submitted will be posted on the Midlands Meander Face­book page with the public setting the votes by “liking” the video. The video with the most likes by February 12 will win the grand prize.
