Conditions of participation:

All international students currently studying in Germany can enter our contest. Just take a 360° panoramic photo of “The most beautiful place in Germany” and send it to (subject: 360° photo contest)!
Along with your photo, please also tell us when and where the photo was taken, and why you think your picture shows Germany’s most beautiful spot. In addition, please introduce yourself in a brief text stating where you’re from, what you are studying at which university and how long you’ve been in Germany.

The closing date is 23 August 2017.

The contest is divided into two stages:

  1. Initially, our editorial team will examine all entries and create a shortlist of three to five images. This preselection will be posted on the wall of our Study in Germany Facebook page.
  2. We will subsequently ask our community to choose the winner by simply liking one of the preselected 360° photos. The picture which receives the most votes by the editorial deadline wins!

360° camera worth approximately € 500.00.
