    Win $25,000 with the Retail Game-Changer Challenge

    Are you a creative, tech-star, or entrepreneur who could help solve a business challenge? How could you help get more people into shopping centres and have a great experience? 

    Pitch your idea in UniSA's Retail Game-Changer Challenge supported by Precision Group, and you could win $25,000.

    This competition gives you the opportunity to use your creative genius to revolutionise the shopping experience. Teams of up to six people from all backgrounds are welcome to pitch their concepts, as long as at least one group member is a student who is currently enrolled in tertiary study in South Australia.

    Tell us your idea, and you'll have that chance to win $25,000, PLUS the opportunity to pitch to the CEO of Precision Group. 

    For more information visit or email

    Applications close Friday 3 May 2019.

    Turn your idea into a business – Venture Catalyst Space applications closing soon

    Applications are closing soon for Venture Catalyst Space! 

    If you have an idea that uses space technology, we want to hear from you. Successful applicants will receive workshops, mentoring, workspace, a stipend of $6,000 per company and the opportunity to pitch for a sponsored overseas tour (and you can do it while you are are studying!). 

    We are looking for ideas not only for traditional 'space' companies and professions, but also for those that may only use space signals and data products – for example, farmers, marine pilots, or emergency workers (who all use satellite data for monitoring crops, guiding cruise liners, and tracking bush fires respectively). 

    Win yourself $100... Just sign up for The UniSA+ Award

    Sign up and lodge at least one approved submission for The UniSA+ Award between now and 9am Monday 29 April, and you’ll go in the draw to win a $100 Visa Gift Card to spend however you like. 

    The UniSA+ Award is the icing on the cake that is your UniSA degree – providing you with an official transcript of all the co-curricular activities you have undertaken during your time at university, and helping you to stand out as an exceptional graduate and prospective employee.

    Visit MOD.'s WAGING PEACE exhibition before it ends on Sunday 28 April

    If you haven’t checked out WAGING PEACE at MOD. yet, make sure you visit and experience the exhibition in its full glory before it's de-installed on Monday 29 April. 

    WAGING PEACE asks whether it’s possible to proactively and aggressively pursue peace. Exhibits include:
    • Brand Peace – displays results from research into SA’s perceptions of peace. UniSA Communication Design and Illustration students were tasked with using this data to re-brand peace.
    • Games for Peace – a spin on the usual video games, you can test out a range of games that promote understanding, build empathy, or need players to cooperate to succeed.
    • Trigger Warning – a short M rated film experience escalating mistrust and conflict, enabled by the algorithms that control our social networks and news feeds.
    • Augmented relief – an AR experience which puts you in the centre of a deployable hospital and looks at how defence industries apply technologies for good. 
    Visit MOD. adjacent the Morphett St Bridge on North Terrace, Adelaide. Already seen the exhibition? Share your feedback with others and review on TripAdvisor.
