A little bit of fun: caption competition

It’s been a busy term, and the exam / coursework deadline season is creeping ever closer. So we thought we’d give you an opportunity to have a little bit of fun with a caption competition. We’re even giving away a prize!

How to enter

It’s very simple:

  1. Look at the photo below
  2. Think of a funny caption
  3. Enter the caption in the form below. Make sure you enter your contact details correctly! Your email address MUST be your University email address (the enrolment number @ glam.ac.uk address!).

You can only suggest one caption for the photo, so make it the funniest one you can think of. Keep in mind that Glamlife has a broad audience: if the entry is likely to offend people, it won’t win.

What you can win

The prize is £30 in Love 2 Shop vouchers – these have a short expiry date on them. You will have to use them by the end of March!

The judging process

All entries will be judged by the Glamlife team. We will pick the entry that we find funniest. However, any entries that are likely to cause offence will not win, even if they are very funny.

Here is the photo:
