My LU Experience photo contest 2020

Compete with your best shots!

What was the highlight of your time at Lund University? Would you like to share a great photo that captures a special moment or a fun memory?

My LU Experience photo contest

Show us your best student experience at Lund University. You do not have to be a professional photographer or have access to a professional camera in order to take part in the contest. Photos had to be submitted by 10 May 2020, 23:59. The voting process took place 15–24 May 2020.

You can participate in one, or several, of the following categories, but only with one photo in each category:

  • So totally Swedish – what about Sweden have you enjoyed the most? What games, food or other peculiarities typical for Swedes do you find fascinating?
  • LU student’s routine – showcase your daily routines at Lund. What does your life in a student corridor look like? Everything from doing laundry to studying with your buddies applies!
  • Lund from my angle – show us how you see Lund from your own perspective. Experiment with wide or close-up shots and capture great moments or places in the city.
  • Submit your photos via LimeSurvey

One winner in each category will get the LU hoodie from the University Shop. The prize can be shipped worldwide if needed. Photos of the winners will be published on the International Desk Facebook Page and may also be featured in Lund University's digital marketing channels and printed materials.
