With just a month left until Virgin Media Shorts closes for entries, we wanted to remind you about a pretty exciting addition to this year’s competition – the Lucky 13th spot on the shortlist. The entry that’s shared the most online between 12th July (at midday) and 19th July (by clicking on one of the share icons beneath the film on our website) will take its rightful place in the final.
That means any tweets or facebook likes you’ve already built up before that window won’t be counted – only sharing that takes place between 12th and 19th July will go towards crowning the Lucky 13th finalist. This is so everyone is on a level playing field; films entered a minute before the deadline will have just as much chance at making the spot as films uploaded on day one. So as soon as we give you the signal that the comeptition has closed, start pimping your short!
