What does creativity mean at the University of Freiburg? For the photo competition "Connecting Creative Minds" from the Office of Public Relations at the University of Freiburg and the Media Centre of the University Library, students, researchers and staff from administration and technology examined this question and answered it with demanding and unusual pictures.

A jury evaluated the nearly 100 submissions and selected 15 images from them, which answered the question in a technically and artistically particularly appealing way. The motifs were on display in the „Connecting Creative Minds" exhibition in the foyer of Freiburg University Library from March 14 to May 15, 2019. At the closing ceremony “Create!” on May 23, 2019, the jury selected the three best pictures. In addition, all those interested were able to vote online on the audience favorites.

First prize went to chemistry student Philipp Gaiser for his picture "Nächtlicher Lernraum" (“Nocturnal Study Space”). 2nd place went to Uwe Nüssle, employee of the Media Centre at the University Library, and his picture “Mit Kreativität Grenzen überwinden” (“Overcoming Limits with Creativity”). Third place went to PhD student Björn Gerdes from the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg with the photo “Vollgas für die Energiewende” (“Full throttle for the energy revolution”). During the online vote, the audience chose the picture "Lever Du Jour" by lecturer Christina Plötze from the Department of Sport and Sport Science.
