1. General provisions

In September 2019, TU Graz will launch a casting call for its students for a campaign entitled Be the Face of TU Graz 2019/2020. From the end of September to the beginning of November, students of the university can apply to become the face of TU Graz for the current academic year. Seven students will be selected, one per faculty. We are looking for men and women of different ages, and with a range of different backgrounds – basically as diverse a group as possible.

Applications will be accepted from 26 September to 3 November 2019, and the selection will be made in early November.

2. Who can participate?

Participation is open to all TU Graz students. Students who are selected must provide a copy of their notification of continued enrolment at TU Graz.

3. Which photos can be submitted?

Any photo on which the student’s face is clearly recognisable can be submitted. The photo can be a portrait or full-length.

4. Jury/voting

The jury’s decision is final. If one of the winners withdraws before the professional photo and film shooting in November, the jury may nominate a replacement.

5. Notification of winners/prizes

After the competition closes and the professional photo and film shooting has taken place, the pictures of the winners will be published at www.tugraz.at/go/betheface. The seven winners will each receive a EUR 100 Graz voucher and a TU Graz hoodie. The winners will be notified by e-mail. Prizes are non-transferable.
