Storytelling Video Giveaway

Heatwave is turning 15 on 15 October. To celebrate, we're giving away a professionally produced storytelling video.

That's right!

We're going to produce a video telling one of your human interest stories.

Why are we doing this?

Because we believe that storytelling is one of the most effective ways of communicating and we believe in giving back. Also, it's our birthday and we can!

Do you have a human-interest story to tell? It could be about running your business, overcoming an obstacle or about success against all odds. Even if your brand makes a difference in the lives of others, you're welcome to enter.

Giveaway T’s and C’s:

  • The closing date for submissions is 18 September 2020.

  • You have to be based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

  • We need to be able to shoot at your location, whether it be an office, your home, or a place that you're comfortable with.

  • The shoot will take place between 27 September 2020 and 2 October 2020.

  • There has to be an actual human-interest story, not just a promo for your products or services.

  • You are welcome to use this video for your own promotional purposes but you may not edit it in any way.

  • You must sign a model release allowing us to use the video in our marketing campaigns.

  • The prize isn’t transferable and can’t be exchanged for cash.

Every entry will be carefully evaluated and the story that piques our interest most will be the one we tell. To assist with pre-production, we may do a site visit before the day of the shoot.

To enter, please email a 500-word summary of the story you would like us to tell to

We can't wait to hear from you!

Lots of love,
