Enter the DIS Food Story Contest

How can food build bridges across cultures?

Join the Conversation

We’re launching a photo contest (with prizes!), and we want to hear your stories!

This semester, we’re thinking about food. In particular, we want to know: How are you building communities and sharing traditions around food while studying abroad? Is there a specific cake your Homestay makes to celebrate each other’s birthdays? A tradition your Kollegium has of eating together once a week, or a new dish you have learned to cook while abroad?

Submit to the Photo Contest this Semester

Simply post your photo on Instagram with the hashtags #disabroad and #DIStakformad, along with a caption telling the story behind the picture. Then tag the DIS account, @dis.copenhagen. You are more than welcome to post multiple times, possibly making your chances even better for winning! Your Instagram must be public for us to be able to view your post.

The Winners

We are selecting the first winner on September 12. From then, we will select winners on September 26, October 3, November 7, and November 27 – so there are plenty of opportunities to share your food stories! When your photo is selected, we will repost it on our social media platforms.

The Prizes

Winners will have a choice of:
– 500 DKK to La Glace
– Grocery tote bag along with a grocery gift card worth 500 DKK

We look forward to seeing your submissions!
