PolyU will celebrate its 85th anniversary in 2022. As you may know, we have been welcoming ideas and contributions from members of the PolyU community to help commemorate this important milestone. Participants have the chance to earn a cash award of HK$10,000 or other prizes.
We are delighted to have received many submissions for the lyrics contest. However, we would like to invite more people to submit entries for the other categories, namely videos, souvenirs and memorabilia. Therefore, we are pleased to extend the submission deadline for these three categories to 31 July 2021.
In particular, we warmly welcome your ideas and contributions in the following areas:
1. My Fond Memories@PolyU Video Contest
What are your fondest memories of your days at PolyU? Are there special encounters, places and moments you remember best? How did your teachers or classmates inspire you? What kind of memorable experiences did PolyU make possible for you? We invite you to create a short video to tell us your story! We recommend the video be filmed in 16:9 ratio, within 3 minutes in length and in mp4 or mov format.
Act Now: Complete the Online Submission Form and upload your video link with a description to illustrate the key message and presentation of the video. The submissions will be judged based on the following criteria: video quality, originality, appropriateness, creativity, and storytelling ability.
2. You-Design-Your-PolyU Souvenirs Contest
The University would like to give a souvenir to all stakeholders of the PolyU community in celebration of the special occasion of PolyU’s 85th anniversary. You are invited to contribute your original design of a souvenir/a series of souvenirs (physical and/or digital).
The designs will be considered based on their
1) creativity and originality;
2) relevance to the 85th anniversary celebrations; and
3) feasibility for future production of the souvenir(s) if applicable.
Sharing fond memories of PolyU and its memorabilia is a powerful way to celebrate the 85th anniversary and to showcase the milestones of our University. We invite you to contribute PolyU memorabilia, such as valuable photos, certificates, teaching materials, publications, mementos, uniforms, souvenirs, or any items related to PolyU and its forerunners. These valuable collections will be exhibited at anniversary events, and included in anniversary publications.
Act Now: Complete the Online Submission Form with a description and photo(s) of the item(s) you would like to share. The Alumni Affairs and Development Office will contact you for collection arrangements.
All quality entries for each of the three contests and the contribution to memorabilia will receive a PolyU 85th anniversary souvenir as a token of appreciation.
Special recognitions/ prizes including cash prizes*, staycation packages and dining coupons of Hotel ICON will be given to the best entries for lyrics, souvenirs and videos, as selected by the 85th Anniversary Steering Committee as well as through public voting across the PolyU community.
*The top three entries in each category will be awarded a cash prize of HKD $10,000!
We look forward to your participation and receiving your entries by 31 July 2021.
PolyU reserves the right of review and final decision of the selected entries.
