Who are we looking for?

We are looking for seven people (one from each faculty) of different ages, men and women, from different subjects and from all backgrounds. We need the candidates to be available for two photo shooting sessions in November and May and we need them to give us the rights to use their pictures in print and online media without a time limit. Candidates should also be willing to come to extra photo sessions and other PR activities in the course of the academic year, as far as it is compatible with their schedules.

The seven chosen photo models will get the pictures from the professional shootings for their own use, Graz vouchers to the value of 100 euros and a TU Graz-Hoodie.
