This is your time to register your society at theUNIs.co.uk. Simply fill in your name, contact info, university and 250 words about how your society supports its members. Then submit a photo that best represents your society doing what it does best! This photo will go on your voting page which you’ll need to promote to win the competition.
Phase 2: VOTING: 16th October – 30th October 2018
This is the time you’ll have to promote your Facebook page and get as many votes as possible. Go crazy and share this around all your mates, members, family and those who know and love your society.
The society with the most votes in each category wins the category prize – to be announced on our social media over the coming weeks. Make sure you’re following us on our social handles so you get the first peak when we reveal the prizes!
