Hi All,

Here in the UK the Virgin group are running a competition for small
companies to win a top prize of £250K and two runner prizes or £100K.
Sadly not just going to give us a bunch of used notes....I did ask. But
rather the above amount in marketing and brand awareness assistance.

As a small UK manufacturer Photon Beard would find this unbelievably
valuable.  We have some great ideas for products that will help all you guys but we
need to increase our profile in order to grow the business.

All you need to do to help us is visit this link

http://www.virginmed...w/photon-beard/

Vote for us and then check your inbox for the confirmation email.  You must
confirm your vote for it to count. Voting closes on 5th May so please vote
ASAP - yes even you other lighting manufacturers - you know you want to
help us as well!

You do not have to be in the UK to vote so where ever you are on this small
planet you can help us.  Should we win you can be sure that Cinematography.com would be
one of the major marketing tools we would inform Richard Branson's team
about and we would try and divert a good portion of the funds to this forum.

Thank you in advance on behalf of all at Photon Beard.

I got hung up on the "I am not a robot' question, or is that a statement, or an assertion... eventually I decided to say yes, i'm not a robot and voted.

Thank you all - we are currently sat at 64th place.  We just need to get into the top 50.  Then we get to pitch directly to the judges.

I don't think it's fair that the other companies are also still getting votes - surely that is not allowed?

 

Anyway - thanks again for your support.

 

P.S. Keep an eye on us.  We have some great ideas for new products which I hope you guys will love.
