GATW season 34 – send your greetings today!
Those of you who have very strong ties to Jamaica may be aware that every year our family members Clarence, Carol & Krystia Royes film Greetings Across the World (GATW). GATW is in its 34th season (!) and for the first time they are not travelling abroad to film the greetings. This year, as with so much of our lives in 2020, GATW is going virtual!
What do you need to do to send greetings to family & friends in Jamaica? It’s as simple as 1,2,3…
- Record a short video or yourself and/or your family, ensuring that everyone starts by introducing themself, say where you are located, then name the family members/friends you are sending the greetings to (make sure you don’t leave anyone out!). End your video with a seasonal greeting (e.g., Merry Christmas everyone!)
- Send your video to the GATW production team via Whatspp (876 422 1203) or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If the video is really big, please send it via WeTransfer! Videos must be submitted by 4 December, so don’t wait till the last minute!
- Tell your family and friends to look out for your greetings, which will be aired from 6 December – 3 January on Jamaican TV (3 programs per day, after or before each news broadcast – during SMILE JA, Mid Day News and Primetime News). All greetings will also be posted on the GATW YouTube channel at the end of the season.
The full submission guidelines video can be reviewed here.
Everyone could use a cheerful greeting this year, so make sure you send your greetings in time! December 4 will be here before we know it!
