The Jury has wrapped up their proceedings and turned in the final 100 shortlist tonight. Team GDC will be announcing the same on-schedule on-site, on Monday.
Post the announcement, the shortlisted participants will get a verification call from our “on-ground organizers” and you will be asked to fax-in a set of documents. The Jury will move in to the next round of deliberations, post verification. Team GDC will keep you updated all the way through.
To make sure we can all take a ring-side view of the proceedings, Team GDC will blog the judging event live from the venue at Mumbai. So please stay tuned to the announcements over the next couple of days. There are going to be mega prizes for the audience on the web, as they decide to continue on tracking the journey of the semi-finalists, and then the finalists. You will get a chance to pick your favorite couples and cheer them along - cause if they win, as ‘team supporters’ you too will also get a chance to win big!
Lot of things are in the works, and we will share the details as soon as possible.
It has been exactly 2 weeks since we started this blog, and it has been an amazing experience listening and learning from you.
Thank you all for sharing your thoughts and best wishes.
Just waiting with bated breath, have almost bitten my nails off to the root!!

Well, the die is cast. Many of us will spend a sleepless night. The lucky 100 will make it and those who won’t will taste disappointment, but like they say, life goes on…At least the GDC made life a little exciting and gave us something to hope for. A thought comes to the mind though. We’ve been rivals thus far and some may continue to be so for some more time. But why can’t we all, bound as we are by the same passion for travel, form a group/ community and continue to be in touch through our blogs? TGDC has given us all a great platform and we could carry it forward. For starters, all applicants from Delhi & NCR could get together and organize trips, etc. What say?

I dont know what to say here, but i think we would miss the train. we kept on posting our links to social sites with no response at all, how can u call ur employees, friends known to ask for votes.. but still it didnt work out i guess. My math says that 30% of the total population has got good votes for more than 100 (assumption based on the scores i saw on whole 36 pages). but if the jury is looking at any other thing than votes and testimonials then i promise you, we are good spirits and we will reach there to be in the nature.
