Hey there citizens of UNMC!

IGNITE your official student media is turning 2 this Wednesday and we want to celebrate with you! All week long we will be holding events to celebrate all elements important to student media such as creativity, outspokenness and originality.

Our line up for the week (*drumroll*)

All week long – Social Media Competition

Come by our booth in front of The Core at the SA. We’ll have a big Instagram frame for you. Your job? Use the frame, take the most fun and original photo you can and upload it to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #IGNITEturns2. Our panel judges shall pick their favourites to be the lucky winners of myBurgerLab vouchers.

Monday: The IGNITE Week Workshop & Competition

This event is open to all students (including IGNITE members). We are looking forward to sharing our writing advice and experience with our curious readers. The writing competition helps us at IGNITE to discover budding writers outside the IGNITE team. There will be a competition where you can stand a chance to win myBurgerLab vouchers.

Tuesday: The Ignite Week Showcase: myBurgerlab

myBurgerlab co founder Chin Ren Yi, an alumni of UNMC, has been funding IGNITE event prizes since our inception. Their vouchers for their delicious burgers were the prizes of the very first Masterchef event and then our very first Nations Cup Photography Competition. A couple of weeks ago we interviewed the aforementioned alumni as well. He welcomed us at his restaurant in Seapark, we felt it was time we welcomed him back home so that YOU can have your questions answered.
