Studentenwerke Photo Competition

Since 2008, the East German Studentenwerke have been hosting a joint photo competition, which takes place every two years and is organized by another Studentenwerk each time. The competition addresses all students of universities, universities of applied sciences, and art schools under the responsibility of the involved Studentenwerke.

In 2018 the photo competition themed “Yes we change” hosted by Studentenwerk Thüringen took place. In July 2018, almost 2,000 people took part in the first online voting in the history of the Studentenwerk photo competition. The winners study in Dresden, Rostock and Halle.

The official award ceremony took place on 19 October 2018 in Erfurt. The exhibition with the best photos currently tours through the participating Studentenwerk locations.

Further information on the results can be found on the photo competition website, on facebook and instagram (#StudentPhotoAward2018).
