Calling all students

We want to support students who are making mobile better.

As part of our campaign to #makeitright, we want to support students who are trying to make mobile better.

We will be selecting five students that we feel #makeitright and will be rewarding them each with £1,000

worth of devices.

What are we looking for?

Any project that looks at how we can improve mobile phones. From the devices themselves (e.g. battery power, phone glare to phone pimping) to the way we use them (e.g. new apps, better alarm clocks, selfie stick 2.0).

Are you a student who has a project related to making mobile better?

Fill out an application form here http://po.st/MIRstudents

Please note: all entrants must be over 18 and be studying or a recent graduate and be based in the UK.

We will get back to you if your application is successful.

What happens next?

We’ll be announcing the selected students over the next few months so keep an eye out on our social channels

to see the projects.

Wait, does this this mean Three own my project?

No, we’re just here to help you #makeitright! We’ll claim no copyright of your ideas.

Good luck! Three.
