PostPosted: Sat Jun 13, 2015 11:08 am 
The monthly forum competitions are going to be put on hold for the foreseeable future.

The competitions have run every month for almost ten years, however due to several factors it is no longer possible to run the monthly competitions. The monthly competitions may return in the future and there will of course be special competitions from time to time.

PostPosted: Thu Oct 04, 2012 6:37 pm 
DIY seems to be very popular among TV producers at the moment and every few weeks we get posts in the forum asking for people to get in touch to be considered for a TV program, some companies even email first to ask for permission.

I'm not keen on many charities as many are large corporations who's directors earn hundreds of thousands of pounds per year. recently I was watching TV and saw a brief clip of Donnas Dreamhouse which is a charity that looks after terminally ill children and their families. ...
