MLC and Me 15th Anniversary Contest

MLC and Me contest

Sometimes it is nice to know how other people see you.  The MLC is no exception.  We know that 2.2 M people visit a year, but we want to know why.

Tell us as a birthday present to the MLC for our 15th year, and a PRIZE opportunity for you!


Your creative work should be accompanied by a title and a brief (100-200 word) explanation including describing any of the MLC equipment or spaces you used in the production of your creative work


All works must be entirely your original creation (no reuse of other people’s content). Possible formats are:

  • Photography
  • Video (under 3 minutes)
  • Meme (original photo and text)
  • Jingle or short song
  • Drawings, painting, etc.

All entries will be posted online, and some entries may be displayed as part of temporary or permanent exhibits.

Judging Criteria

  • Creativity
  • Skill at conveying your message
  • Appeal to a broad audience


One first prize will be awarded (Nintendo Switch OR iPad or similar value technology item). 3 other prizes will be awarded (external hard drive OR solar charger).


Open to all current UGA undergraduate and graduate students. Limit of 2 submissions per person.

Submission Deadline

January 15 @ 5 PM.

Fine print

If a group collaborates on a project (such as a video) that is a prize winner, we will determine a way to divide that prize.  There are prize options listed because 1) technology changes; 2) if you already have an iPad, you might not want another one; 3) availability of items changes.
