    Why in the hell does everyone want now videos to sign up for anyhting. Thats BS

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      My assumption is that creating a video takes time and effort, Pete — which should weed out a significant number of applicants — plus; I suppose they want to see a sample of the creativity which will go into the travel guide.

  2. Krish says:

    Could you tell me please, when is the deadline of the video submission?
    Thank You

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      You must submit your video by Monday, May 14, 2018 at 11:59 in the afternoon Coordinated Universal Time at the latest, Krish.
