Contest rules

A $500 grand prize will be given to the winning team. Up to 7 teams of students will each “promote” one night at Felicita’s. Teams can be any size, but there must be 2 dedicated leaders who will work with Felicita’s management in planning the event. The night will be planned from start to finish by each team. A $250 budget will be allocated and can be spent however that group sees fit (Requires management approval). Acceptable items are decorations, performers, prizes or extra advertising. (Each team must present a check list/budget with their application). The budget cannot be used on drink tokens. Posters need to be created by the team, formatted to 11 x 17, 300 dpi as well as a digital image to be used for online advertising / on the screens in the SUB and must be 1360 x 568 pixels also at 300dpi.  These images must be submitted at least 2 weeks before the event. Furthermore the team must create a FB event page. The pub will assist with printing one poster run across campus (25 posters), boosting the FB event through the Felicita’s facebook page and all staffing including sound tech if needed.

All BC Liquor laws, Gaming policy and enforcement branch regulations, Felicita’s House Policies and University poster policies must be adhered to.  Failure to do so could results in cancellation of the event and disqualification from the contest.  Furthermore, Felicita’s management and security reserve the right to shut down the event if these rules are not followed during the evening.
