Snap your Open Evening experience and win a £50 Amazon voucher

10 November 2014

We’re adding a little excitement to this year’s November Open Evenings by launching a photography competition on social media – with a £50 Amazon gift card up for grabs for one lucky winner.

To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is take a picture of your experience at one of our Open Evenings and post it on Gloucestershire College’s Facebook page, or tag Gloscol on Twitter or Instagram, and use the hashtag #chooseGC.

Whether you decide to sign up for a course at one of our Application Hubs, sup a gingerbread latte at Starbucks or are inspired by the pieces on display at the Fashion stand, simply snap it on your smartphone and upload it to your favourite social media site to share your experience with all of your friends.

The Open Evenings take place at Gloucester Campus on Monday 10, the Royal Forest of Dean Campus on Wednesday 12 and Cheltenham Campus on Monday 20 November, with the competition closing at midnight on the final date.

We will then choose our top 10 images and out of these randomly pick one winner, who we will contact via social media after the closing date.

If you’re using Facebook, post your photo to the Gloucestershire College page and use the hashtag #chooseGC.

If you’re using Twitter or Instagram, post your photo @Gloscol and use the hashtag #chooseGC.

Remember to get creative and good luck!
