a doubt!? please help!

One among the themes mentioned for the poster competition is: 'The Poster should reflect the mission statement of the Middle East International Film Festival.' Could someone kindly please help me in understanding the "mission statement" of the MEIFF!!!?

errr...excuse me...

I wanted to know what is the exact last submission date. I have already submitted my posters assuming that 3rd was the last date (as that is what the MEIFF website says)! I wish if I could re-work on one of my posters I believe I could make it much better. Due to lack of time I had to submit my poster without any self-stisfaction! Is there something that possibly could be done here?!!!

for sure!

we're looking to receiving your new submissions. sorry about the mix-up, but we DID extend the deadline till the 10th.

so you mean...

so you mean to say that I can re-work and submit it in my previous entry name itself (as the MEIFF website states that a contestant can submit only two entries)!

Hope these links to be of help!

hey you guys.. really, no words can express my apologies for not getting back to you earlier than this. No proper excuses.. just the usual turmoil of work and most importantly: as the person who coordinated this project, I wasnt very much convinced with the selection as it is not on the par of the great work you have on Khtt. This is partly due to the fact I've been stood up by virtually everyone on that I have invited to join, except for Nellie. So, Nellie, thank you very much for your great contribution and I regret to inform you that your work didn;t go through.

As for the winner, he's a chinese designer and he basically portrayed the obvious in his poster. I have sent the artwork to Huda last week so as to post it on the main page, because she has adviced me to do so, as a lot of the users were dissapointed with my complete ignoring of the matter.. Thank you Huda for your follow up and sorry to all of you who have contacted me regarding the winner and I haven't gotten back to them yet.

I shall post the work by the end of this working week, so inshalla by Sunday the latest you should see the work..

Take care you guys and hope to see your submissions for next year..
Kind regards
