"Connecting Creative Minds" Photography Contest

What does creativity mean at the University of Freiburg? Students, scientists and administrative and technology staff addressed this question in the "Connecting Creative Minds" photo competition. Starting March 14, 2019, all members of the University of Freiburg will be able to vote online for their favorites and win hoodies and other articles from the uniˈshop.

Creative minds – those are researchers, teachers, students, and administrative and technical staff at the University of Freiburg. They are the focal point of the university’s strategy for the future, which is entitled "Connecting Creative Minds – Trinational, European, Global." But what does creativity really mean at the University of Freiburg? For the "Connecting Creative Minds" photo competition, students, researchers and staff have explored this question and captured where they experience or how they conceive of creativity at the university through artistically designed photos.

Exhibition and online voting

The jury will choose from all contributions submitted a selection of images for a photographic exhibition to be held in the foyer of the University Library starting in mid-March 2019.

Furthermore, the selected photographs will be shown on the website as well as in publications and social media presentations of the university.

During the exhibition, anyone interested may use the Excellence Portal to vote for their favorite images online. Starting March 14, 2019, voters may submit one vote. The university will hold a prize drawing for hoodies and other items from the uni’shop among all of those who take part in the poll. The picture that receives the most votes from the public will be awarded 150 euros.
