It is done! The first online-voting in the history of the 6th students photo award 2018 has come to an end last friday.
More than 3.600 votes have been registered - Thank you for your active appearance!

Now we will evaluate the votes and on next monday we will announce the 3 best—placed. So stay in tense. 

Attention Attention!!!

THE LAST DAY - last chance to vote! Activate all and collect as many votes as you can, cause from today evening the Voting Tool will be closed. 
For all those who have just woken up: vote here and make your favourites successful. 


The countdown has started … the last 3 days have begun. Who hasn’t voted yet, has to get a move on.

Fortunately the Voting will last until the 13th July, so hurry and cast your votes!



Many of you have already voted for their favourite photos, but there is certainly more to come.

For all who didn’t cast their votes yet, here’s the link to the Voting.

At the last heat of the Voting we had nearly 500 votes in a short space of time - that should be easy to accomplish again, right?


Thank you for your patience!

Now we are headed in the right direction and are shortly before reactivating the revised and improved online voting. From 2nd to 13th July you get the chance to vote for your favourites again, this time without problems. The voting period will be a little bit longer than the first, as a little redemption ;)

We hope, you will vote busy again and select the winners of our competition.


SERVER PROBLEMS - Online-Voting must be postponed

Due to serious server problems we have to postpone the online-voting for our student photo award. Despite of all efforts in the last days we could not guarantee a reliable online-voting that is accessible to all interested people. Thats why we had to make a clear cut right now.

The page is now going to move to another server, but that will take us some time.

We are doing our best to catch up on the online-voting! When it's done, we surely will inform you in time via mail and in the social medias.

Everyone is going to get a fair chance to vote for their favourites then!

Thank you for understanding. If you have any questions, please contact us:


It's done!

The problems with our server are fixed. From now on you can vote for your favourite photos. To handle the Online-Voting fairly, we will give you 2 more days. You now have time until the 23rd June to cast your vote!

If someone has problems with the login, because his/ her mail address is invalid, please write us a mail to We can reactivate your mail address.

We´ll keep our fingers crossed and thank you for your understanding!!



Technical Difficulties

Unfortunately we are faced to technical difficulties in the moment due to a server crash. We are working hard to fix the problem as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience. We hope that the online-voting is going to run without any difficulties soon. We keep you informed!
