The U101 Welcome Pack Incredible Give Away Competition Event Thing

The U101 Welcome Pack

Lola herself has been in touch with the Design Group and asked that we spread the cheer of U101 at this time of year. She has donated a number of U101 Welcome packs to give away to at least 7 lucky recipients.

Just look at the creative goodness on offer, each object a portal to a different future:

To win a U101 Welcome pack for you or a loved (/hated) one, just enter the fantastic annual U101 Welcome Pack Incredible Give Away Competition Event Thing by following the instructions below.
