Do you love singing, EuroVision or just competitions?

If any of those apply, then you’ll be excited to hear about our upcoming singing competition – UniVision!

Inspired by the Eurovision Song Contest, UniVision brings together a selection of Universities to compete through song to become the UniVision champions.

The event will be hosted in Surrey on Sunday 14 March and we need to submit one musical act (a solo singer or a group of singers) to represent Southampton and perform there live. Think this could be you? Record yourself performing a song and send it in to us (see details below) to be included in the ‘live’ round in January.

Everyone who sends a video will be included in the ‘live’ round on Thursday 14 January where your videos will be livestreamed for students to vote for the final two acts. Our judges will then select the act from the two finalists that will go on to perform in Surrey.

How to submit your entry

Email your entry to sumarketing@susu.org. You will need to include the full names and University email addresses of participants and the name of the song and writer you have performed. The video of your performance should be included as a WeTransfer link – guidance for the video itself can be found below.

The deadline for video submissions is Monday 04 January 2021 at 12:30.

Rules and Guidance for Video Submission 

  • Videos must be recorded landscape.
  • Videos must have been recorded during the entry period.
  • Appropriate social distancing and lockdown rules should be followed in the video and whilst producing it .
  • Background noise should be reduced as much as possible, use an external microphone if you can. 
  • Anyone included in the video/submission must be a current University of Southampton student – accompaniment may be provided/pre-recorded by a non-student, but they will not be considered part of your entry. 
  • Backing tracks should only provide accompaniment to your performance and all singing (other than backing) should be performed live in the recording by participants.
  • Covers of songs are usually covered by fair use, but it is up to the performer to make sure their video submission does not violate copyright. 
  • Videos should be appropriate to share on social media. 
  • By submitting a video entry, you consent to SUSU to sharing your video publicly and for use in marketing materials.

Please note: The Final will take place in Surrey on Sunday 14 March. To enter you must be available on this date.

Good luck!
