We have restricted the gift card to one per winner only, regardless if they submit two designs, each for the hoodie and the sticker (and they both make it to the top!).
Submissions containing language of profanity, prejudice, (cyber) bullying, invasion of privacy, plagiarism or other inappropriate content will be automatically disqualified.
As per University guidelines, unauthorized use of the UBC logo(s) is prohibited. Hence, please do not include UBC official media in your design (more info here).
You are allowed to adapt/use the UBC CSSS logo. For reference, please see here.
