Photo of the month - Competition of the TUM Global & Alumni Office
A picture is worth a thousand words. Through the photo competition of the TUM Global & Alumni Office, our students and staff all throughout the year share impressive moments they captured on camera during their stays abroad. Winning photos are chosen at the end of each month and have the chance to be featured in the TUM G&A Office photo calendar.
Photo competition 2020: online voting is open
After pre-selection by a TUM-internal jury, the 24 best submissions for this year's photo competition are set. Now it's up to you: Which of them should be featured in the TUM Global & Alumni Office's photo calendar 2021? Have your say and choose your three favorites by September 15. Click here to vote
Send us your favorite pictures of your stay abroad! The best images are rewarded at the end of every month, shared via TUM's social media channels, and will be part of the online vote for inclusion in our annual photo calendar.
Your possibilities are in principle unlimited. A good example would be a special moment which enriched your stay abroad in a profound way. Maybe you met some inspiring people or encountered an eye-opening scene or situation. Our aim is to show as many facets of academic stays abroad as possible. Therefore, it would be particularly desirable if your picture was connected to your area of studies, e.g.:
Biodiversity and Land Tenure
Cultural Heritage and History
Innovative Energy Supply and Infrastructure Projects
Urban and Rural Mobility
Mechatronics, Information Technology, and Robotics
Sports and Health
City Planning and Landscape Architecture
All TUM students and staff are welcome to participate. This includes all international visiting students and researchers. TUM alumni are also welcome to participate!
Every month, a TUM-internal jury awards the three best pictures. Each winner receives a voucher for shops that offer fair and sustainable products. These winning photos will enter into a TUM-wide online vote from the beginning of august, in which all students and employees can vote for their favourite pictures for the photo calendar of the following year.
Publication of the photos
The thirteen best pictures – twelve calendar sheets plus cover – will be published on TUM social media and in the TUM Global & Alumni Office Photo Calendar. In a print run of 3,500 pieces, the calendar will be distributed both internally at TUM and sent to all partner universities worldwide.
