Messages from His Excellency the Austrian Ambassador for Indonesia

I am very happy to be acquainted with the “IndoAus Corner”, the website for alumni of Austrian universities. Well-deserved credit for this great initiative and my sincere thanks go to Dr. Khabib Mustofa.

I hope you, our distinguished Austrian alumni, will make use of the myriad opportunities offered by this website to maintain strong relations with Austria, your second home. You have spent a formative period of your lives gaining valuable knowledge and precious friends from Austria. You are now part of a growing family of people who play a crucial role in bringing our two countries closer together.
In like manner, the close cooperation between Austrian and Indonesian universities, in which Universitas Gadjah Mada and Innsbruck University play a prominent part, is a long-standing tradition. It is to be hoped that this fruitful exchange in which the special district Yogyakarta and the Federal State (province) of Tyrol play a special role will continue and strengthen in the years to come.

I am planning to get in touch with the alumni of Austrian universities in the near future and would be happy about any direct communication from your side

Photo Contest : Intercultural Encounters

Background Information

Intercultural Dialogue depicts a significant and successful instrument in the exchange between cultures and religions. In order to further strengthen the concept of dialogue, the Austrian Foreign Ministry (FMeiA) founded the Task Force “Dialogue of Cultures” in 2007, further consolidating efforts and actively engaging in multilateral and bilateral initiatives in the field of intercultural and interreligious dialogue. The Task Force’s projects are characterized by continuous cooperation with civil society, composed of organizations and experts who dedicate their efforts to the promotion and advancement of dialogue as an indispensable concept.

This photo contest - entitled „Intercultural Encounters“ - describes the Task Force’s newest initiative and aims to capture impressions, encounters, and experiences in the field of dialogue in form of pictures. The project further serves as an attempt to illustrate the many facets of dialogue as well as the diversity in opinion, interpretation, and understanding of the photographers in respect to the presented concept. A central aspect is “travelling”, which presents an imperative tool to approach and explore different cultures and religions.


Among all received photos, the most impressive and meaningful ones will be selected for the award by our jury. The best photos will become part of an exhibition that will travel through our Austrian Cultural Fora abroad and thus further promote the concept of intercultural and interreligious dialogue through your demonstrations. The three winners will be awarded with a camera by Lomo.
