Hochschule Düsseldorf
University of Applied Sciences


Each year we look for your best photos in two categories:
"My Stay Abroad" and "My Impression of Germany"​

Show us and other students what you have experienced and what makes your host country special with your best photo!​

If you have completed an internship or a study visit abroad as part of your studies at HSD, we look forward to receiving your contribution in the "My Stay Abroad" category. 

If you come from abroad and are spending an exchange semester or doing an entire study programme at HSD, enter your photo in the category "My Impression of Germany".

There are great prizes to be won in both categories! 

First pl​​ace: 100€      Second Place: 75€      Third Place: 25€


The participation deadline is 10 July 2020.​​


Due to the exceptional circumstances of the current semester, we have extended the deadline for this year's photo competition. Since many of you were unable to spend your planned semester abroad as planned, we are also introducing a third category. 

In the special category "Planänderung - Change of Plans" we are looking forward to photographic contributions that show how you experience this semester. 

When you spend a semester abroad this summer semester (or a semester at the HSD as an incoming student), many things are different than expected. Let us share in your experience. How do the restrictions affect your everyday life at your host university? Did you perhaps even have to return to your home country and can only take advantage of what your host university offers virtually? How do you deal with the situation?

You can either send the completed and signed entry form by post to the address given above or scan it and send it together with the photo to the following e-mail address: fotowettbewerb.io@hs-duesseldorf.de

Please send your photo (JPG format, at least 1200x1800 pixels) exclusively by e-mail to fotowettbewerb.io@hs-duesseldorf.de​

The winners will be chosen by the Department of Student and Academic Affairs staff and will be notified by email.
