The University of Newcastle, Australia

Photo Competition

Have you been on an overseas experience through UON? We would love to see your best photos that reflect your time overseas. All aspects of your time abroad may be considered for subject matter (e.g. student life; the local culture and community; any travel you undertake).

Be creative and help inspire others to go abroad!


The competition is open to all UON students who have successfully completed, or are currently undertaking a student exchange or short-term experience. Experiences could include a semester exchange, an overseas university short course, volunteering abroad, international work placement or attending an international conference.


To be considered in the UON Global Photo Competition, please upload your photo(s) on your personal Facebook or Instagram account with the hashtag #uonglobaltraveller. (Please ensure you make the photo public so it can be entered in the competition)


Each year a prize will be announced.


The top ten entrants will be contacted by UON Global with their images being placed on the UON Study Overseas Facebook page. The winner will then be judged by a panel at UON Global.


  • Photos with people are usually more interesting so if sending through a landscape make sure someone is in it!
