Ples Singsing Masterminds

Contestants have been sending in their essays over the last two weeks but we have noted that some have had difficulty with uploading their ENTRY FORM and ID PHOTO.

We are allowing an additional week for those who have some challenges with email internet connections.

If you are unable to send the filled out form with ID photo attached then take a good quality digital picture of the form and the ID and email them to Ples Singsing.

We may also accept essays sent as good quality JPEG images but we do not encourage this as we will have to arrange someone else to do the typing.

Do not feel hesitant if you have no choice at all within the time span – we’ve had one come from Tapini.

Ples Singsing is envisioned to be a new platform for Papua Niuginian expressions of creativity, ingenuity and originality in art and culture. We deliberately highlight these two very broad themes as they can encompass the diverse subjects, from technology, medicine and architecture to linguistics, music, fishing, gardening et cetera. Papua Niuginian ways of thinking, living, believing, communicating, dying and so on can cover the gamut of academic, journalistic or opinionated writing and we believe that unless we give ourselves a platform to talk about and discuss these things in an open, free and non-exclusively academic space that they may remain the fodder for academics, journalists and other types of writers alone. New social media platforms have given every individual a personal space to share their feelings and ideas openly, sometimes without immediate censure. The Ples Singsing writer’s blog would like to provide another more structured platform for Papua Niuginian expressions in written, visual and audio formats while also providing some regulation of the type and content of materials to be shared publicly.
