UTS Study Abroad Photo Competition

UTS Study Abroad Photo Competition for Spring semester 2017 has ended. You can check out the winners here!

Hi everyone! We hope you’re having a great time discovering Sydney and its surroundings during your semester abroad! We also hope you’ve been photographing and taking videos of everything you’ve seen and everywhere you’ve been because we would love to see these in our upcoming competitions. These will be exclusively for current UTS study abroad and exchange students with great prizes to win!

What inspires you?

Everyone knows a picture is worth more than a thousand words. We invite you to capture your study abroad experience in a photo, and include a caption answering one of the following questions:

  • What studying abroad in Sydney represents to you

  • What makes Sydney and UTS different from other places

  • What makes this experience unique

Be creative, unique and artistic. Look for hidden gems surrounding you every day and entice us with your photo story!

There will be two categories of prizes giving you more of a chance to win! The UTS Choice prize winner will receive a Port Stephen’s Day Trip. The People’s Choice prize winner will receive a UTS gift pack.

So start snapping and get as many of your friends and families to vote for you!
