Terms and conditions
The subject of your blog should be your Welcome Week. The theme is open to individual interpretation but entries must have the Welcome Weekend and Induction Week activities at their heart. You may include photographs within your blog.
The judges will select one blog which best illustrates the theme of the competition. In choosing the winner they will be looking for a blog that is focused, well-written and entertaining, as well as considering originality, personality and interpretation of the brief.
Each blog entry must be tagged 'My Welcome Week 2012'. Entries without this tag will not be considered.
