The winner of a 180 degree photo contest ending on Friday put on by IGNITE at Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber will be eligible to win an iPhone priced at $1,029 for the cheapest model.

“Wanna win a brand new iPhone XR? Now’s your chance to grab the newest Apple smartphone for FREE in this giveaway,” the student union posted on Instagram earlier this week.

As of Thursday evening, there were 58 posts on Instagram with the #IGNITE180 hashtag, but this does not necessarily reflect all the contest entries as some may have been posted on profile Stories.

The Avro Post emailed all four IGNITE executives to inquire what budget line the cost of the iPhone would fall under, but the student government have ignored 14 requests for comment since August.
