Competition - Prospectus cover

We want you to showcase the different parts of the University of Aberdeen that embody breaking or going beyond boundaries

Our undergraduate student prospectus is the first thing new or interested students see when looking into the University of Aberdeen. Its goal is to cement the interest of students and make them feel like Aberdeen could be their home for the next few years. The front cover, as such, will be their first point of reference for their journey. Not only would your photo be used on the front cover, but it would also be used on the website, social media, and even on campus. Hundreds of thousands could see your work of people.

Submission requirements

The prompt for the competition is breaking or going beyond boundaries. We want you to showcase the different parts of the University of Aberdeen that embody this. Maybe it’s a building, maybe its people; use your imagination and let your voice be seen through the prompt.

Please remember you are representing the University of Aberdeen, and as such, absolutely no inappropriate imagery will be condoned.

All submissions MUST be Portrait format (as close to size w177xh256mm), with a minimum resolution of 300dpi

Photos should be supplied in their original format and size as a jpg or tif.


First Place would get their photo on the front cover of the prospectus and receive a £100 Amazon voucher.

Second place would get their photo on the back cover of the prospectus and receives a £50 amazon voucher.


The deadline for this competition is the 15th of December at 12 noon and must be submitted to before that time. The winner will be announced the following week.
