Full terms and conditions below. If you have any questions, please do contact us
Good luck all, and hope you have a fantastic time in Belfast!

-The account the tweet is sent from must be following @RCNLibraries in order to be considered for a prize.

-The competition will be judged by staff working at the Connectivity Lounge (provided by RCN Libraries) during RCN Congress.
