Instagram competition terms and conditions - January 2023

The KnowYorCampus competition will run from 5 January 2023 to 5 February 2023, and requires entrants to submit photos taken on any of the University of York campuses - Campus East, Campus West or King's Manor. Images should be posted publicly to Instagram with the dedicated hashtag #KnowYorCampus in the caption. Photos submitted on other platforms, or via other means, including direct message, will not be considered.

By using this hashtag, you grant permission for the image to be shared to the University of York social media accounts. This may include, but is not limited to: Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube and TikTok. Reposted images will always be credited to the original poster where possible.

Entries will be judged by a panel of University staff. Up to 10 images will be selected to be shared directly to @uniofyork Instagram stories and grid. The top three entrants will be offered a selection of University merchandise, to be collected from campus or shipped to a UK address. Of these three, the winning image, as decided by the panel, will be used as a "cover photo" across our social media channels for a period of at least one month. 

This competition is open to University staff, students and alumni, as well as members of the public. Entrants do not need to have an affiliation with the University of York, but may only submit photos they have taken themselves or with the permission of the original photographer. Entrants should be at least 13 years of age at the time their entry is submitted. 

All communication about this competition will be conducted through the official @uniofyork Instagram account, or via email from social-media@york.ac.uk. The University of York will not contact entrants through any other account or method.

This contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Instagram.
