    Dear Friends,
    We have received hundreds of pitch applications since we posted the registration link publicly. SVE Team appreciate your interest and strong support, but due to the very limited pitching slots(6-8) every month, some of you may never receive a confirmation letter from us even though we do hope everyone who applies can get on board. All applications are processed on a first come fist serve rule, and the confirmation letter is generally sent 7 days around before the contest happens.We hope you can understand. Thanks very much.
