$1500 for #votermedia coverage of #ubcvotes

Three UBC undergrad societies (Arts, Engineering and Science) have committed $500 each to reward competing bloggers who cover their upcoming elections. The funds will be allocated by students voting on the election ballots, so this is a 1-time VoterMedia (1VM) contest. [The AMS Continuous VoterMedia (CVM) contest is also ongoing with $1200/month.]

The 1VM contest rules are not quite finalized, but watch the UBC Votes website and #ubcvotes Twitter tag for news.

Engineering (EUS) elections start first: nominations close this Friday March 4, campaigning starts next Monday March 7, voting the following week March 14 - 18. Arts (AUS) and Science (SUS) elections are one week later.

You can start covering the campaigns even if you haven't officially entered the contest yet. So get ready!
