Hi there,

It might be worth sending it to Michelle Constant at BASA (business arts south Africa) who may be able to assist.

Dear Standard Bank Team,

Thanks for the great site where we can interact with you all. I am an aspiring writer and I have come up with an original reality tv show that looks for the best visual artist in South Africa. I have seen how your Bank associate itself with artists in the country and I was hoping you would like to see my script.
