Wanted: Your love story for Huisgenoot’s movie

2014-11-14 16:13

Cape Town - Huisgenoot is 100 years "young" in 2016 and to celebrate the occasion an exciting new movie project kicks off in this week’s issue.

That’s right! Huisgenoot has teamed up with kykNET to make a movie and your love story could be turned into a romcom. They're looking for a moving story with all the ingredients of a winning script – laughter, tears and nail-biting moments.

With this movie, they'll be celebrating the most important milestone in the history of the oldest and biggest Afrikaans magazine in the country.

Your story must of course have a happy ending – the hero and heroine must end up living happily ever after but like in all relationships there must be ups and downs. In the latest Huisgenoot there are detailed guidelines for writing a typical romantic comedy script.

The closing date for the Huisgenoot love story competition is 14 February 2015. Entries will be judged by a panel from kykNET and Huisgenoot.

Besides standing a chance to have your story turned into a movie, there are also Olympus digital cameras and cash prizes up for grabs.

Don’t miss the latest Huisgenoot – it’s on sale from Friday 7 November.

Read the guidelines, write your story in 3 000 words and e-mail it to by 14 February 2015.
