So I’ve been a little
slack super busy the last little while and still haven’t finished updating my Watershed blogs or shared this teeny bit of news.
Waaaay back in February I wrote a blog called One Life? as part of the FilmLife Blogging Competition. The competition was to write a 300-800 word blog which could help spark conversations about organ and tissue donation in support of DonateLife Week 2013.
Annnnnddd……. I won!
The lovely Carly Findlay was one of the judges and she had these lovely words to say on her blog:
“In deciding on a winner we were asked to consider whether a post inspired conversation about organ and tissue donation, whether it showed creativity, whether it was well written, whether it was presented creatively and whether it had any “x-factor” in capturing and using the theme in an unexpected way.
Alysha’s post scored high points against all criteria.
…………The piece adopted a poetic voice, mixed with a more conventional descriptive approach that demonstrated versatility and skill from the writer. Over three cleverly structured “acts”, each in a slightly different style, Alysha set out her case. We found her post beautifully written, and attractive on the page. Its compelling imagery and energy propelled us forward, and kept us involved to the end.”
Read the rest of her comments here about half way down the page. You’ll also be able to watch the winner of the FilmLife Project short film competition(at the top), which is a fabulous parody of Gotye’s ‘Somebody that I used to know’.
