We are very excited at the response we are getting to our 25th anniversary contest to win a PADI dive career with us right here on Koh Tao! We’ve had a number of applications already and videos are starting to filter in now too. So if you have submitted your application form already, please do submit your video as soon as you are able. In order to be short listed as one of the 10 finalists, you either need to be in the 5 selected by our judging panel, or in the top 5 by community vote on our facebook page. So…the sooner your video goes live the more time you have to get those all important votes to ensure you progress to the next stage!
So…what are we looking for in your videos we hear you ask? Well, first and foremost we are looking to meet you! We don’t need pro level video or anything flashy – we will be selecting the finalists based purely on your personality and passion!
We just want to see why you think you should win, and get to know a bit about your love for the natural world, and your experiences with diving, marine life, marine or land conservation etc. We appreciate that perhaps you are not able to ditch everything and go diving any time you want to (yet!), but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have a lot to offer! So here are a few questions and examples to get you started – although feel free to be creative, it’s by no means an extensive list….
Is there a story behind your love of diving? Tell us why you want to make the ocean your office!
Do you have a favourite marine creature? What do you love about it and why?
What would be your perfect dive? Tell us all about it!
Why do you want to become a PADI Instructor?
Have you taken part in some interesting community projects (either land or sea based)? Tell us how you contributed!
Maybe you have a passion for teaching/training already from another field?
Are you proactive in your efforts to be sustainable and reduce pollution and plastic etc? We’d love to hear about your passion for the environment!
Have you already been involved in any conservation activities?
Hopefully this gives you some ideas to get you started. We cant wait to see what you all come up with! Feel free to get your friends involved too – either with the filming or as part of the video. The more we know about you, the easier it will be to see how you will fit into our amazing team!
So…what are you waiting for. Get those video entries submitted today to be in with the chance to win your dream life!
GOOD LUCK! 🙂
