Use our platform to share your student experience 


This year, we want @otagopolytechnic, to show everyone what student life at OP is actually like. By that we mean no scripts, no corporate direction, and you get paid. 

YOU have the creative freedom to tell your story, through your perspective, in your own way.  


I’m ready to apply now

Use our platform to share your student experience 

 We're searching for a range of current students, across all study areas, all programmes to become official OP Creators for our social media.  

 There are pretty much no rules other than the content you create is about what it's like to study at OP - document your daily life, your own student experience or highlights of your course - you decide. 

What’s in it for you? 

  • Play your part representing your study area, your community and your mates 
  • Network with other OP Creators, students and lecturers 
  • Show people how OP is different from others 
  • Grow your own online network (we can tag when your content is posted) 

Being an OP Creator is great experience to add to your CV.  

Communicate, collaborate, and get recognised for the content you create. Consider this as a project to add to your portfolio, CV or even receive recommendations from our marketing team on your LinkedIn! 
And of course $$$ 
How does a $200 Prezzy Card sound? 

The gig 

Create three 15 seconds' videos ready-to-post - selfie videos, reels, stories - you pick! 
Submit your content to our marketing team and Voilà, you’ve earned yourself $200.
