Summer in Hamburg

In cooperation with Überseequartier Nord, we have a great new photo competition for you in May/June 2023. Show us your most beautiful photo in colour from Hamburg's HafenCity under the motto "Summer in Hamburg". It's up to you whether you choose the impressive architecture, the water, the residents of HafenCity or something else entirely.

But it's worth taking part, because the  participants with the best photos will win a very special prize!


What you can win

1st place:
The winning picture will be part of the 28th OPEN ART exhibition in Überseequartier Nord and the winner will receive an overnight stay at the 25 hours Hotel HafenCity and 2 PHOTOPIA Day tickets.

Other places:
All other winners will also receive a place in the 28th OPEN ART exhibition and 2 PHOTOPIA Day tickets.


In addition, all winners will of course receive the popular PHOTOPIA hoodie - so it's worth winning.

How to join

If you also share your photo as a story and tag @photopia_ham and @ueberseeboulevard_hafencity during the mentioned period, the Instagram universe will help you get your chance to win 😉

You can find all the conditions of participation below.

We are very excited to see how you see the summer in Hamburg through your camera or smartphone and look forward to your picture. Good luck!
