Face of Australia: The Final 3

Face of Australia: The Final 3

The results of the semi-final round are in, 3 finalists have been decided by popular vote... and I made it through! Thanks in no small part to the good people at the other end of this newsletter — namely, you.
[Josh Jensen]I am extremely grateful to all of you that took the time to register and vote during the semi-final round, and here I am asking yet again for your help to leap the final hurdle.
What exactly is the Face of Australia, you ask? It's a part-time job working for The Underwater Channel (UWC). I would research and write my own stories, film them, and present them to the UWC's global online audience. I'm busting to tell everyone about the great diving we have here, to teach people a bit about marine life, and to tell you about the good work being done by local researchers and conservationists. Most of all, I'd love to to show that it doesn't need to be all doom and gloom from the media when it comes to the underwater world.
[sweepers]Votes from the semi-final round don't count anymore, unfortunately. So if you can spare a minute a day over the next week to cast your new votes, I will be eternally obliged. Voting runs from now until May 8th , and you can vote every day. You can also get your spouse, partner, kids, pets, postman, plumber, etc, to vote too — and with the bikini-clad hotties I am up against, I need all the help I can get!
Rest assured, this is the last time I'll bombard you with a request for help. Future newsletters will once again give you useful, relevant and sometimes amusing material. But for now, relax and bask in that warm fuzzy feeling you get each time you vote, knowing that you helped me land a job I'm passionate about, and that you'll be in my good-books for life.
All the best, and thanks ~
Josh
