Instagram 'ISS Hidden Hangouts' : Wireless Headphones

 

Wireless Headphones

Are you ready to go on an adventure? This year we will be posting pictures on Instagram, using the hashtag #isshiddenhangouts. The aim of the competition is to find the secret location featured in our post, take a selfie in the same location then post & tag @sussexiss, using the hashtag #isshiddenhangouts

The more times you take a picture in one of the locations, the more times your name will be entered in the prize draw!

The prize is Sony WH-H900 h.ear Wireless headphones - the soft, padded ear pads make for comfortable listening and the foldable design means you can carry them anywhere! Perfect for the ISS Trips away!

There is also a wildcard - if you post the most unusual picture of campus, your name will be entered into the prize draw 5 times.

Please enter your submissions via Instagram, using the hashtag #isshiddenhangouts by midnight of 12 August 2018.

Prizes will be awarded at the end of the Session 2 farewell ceremony, but the competition is still open to Session 1 only students. In the event that a Session 1 only student is to win a prize then this will posted out to them via DHL.
