Win £500 with our Bright Spark competition

13 November 2015

Are you a Bright Spark? Bring your ideas to life.

Have you got an innovative or creative idea to improve your library? This is your chance to make it happen. No idea is too big or too small and can cover any area of the library or our services. For example:

  • It could be a technological innovation
  • A way to make the library more sustainable
  • A new service or an inventive way for us to deliver a current service

The student with the winning idea, chosen by your fellow students, will receive a prize of £500* and see their idea developed and introduced to the library in September 2016.

To be in with the chance of winning the £500* prize or one of the £100* finalist prizes enter your idea through our online form or on a postcard in the Library. The deadline for entries is 13 December.

Finalists will be chosen by a panel of academic and support staff. Successful students will be notified by email by Friday 18 December 2015.

The finalists will be asked to produce a more detailed business case for their idea. This will be presented on a poster created by the finalists in collaboration with the University Design Team. The winner will be chosen by the students voting in the libraries and will be announced in February 2016.

* The winning student will choose vouchers to the value of £500 and the runners up vouchers to the value of £100.
