Why I Love U City

With such a diverse city, the best shot is just around your corner. A favorite texture in the Loop, a great brick wall, people, music, shadows in the evening light, a profusion of flowers, the moon over the shimmering swimming pool? The choice is yours and we want you to shine.

This year’s contest is open to all U City youth from pre-school through 12th grade. The top 13 entries will be featured in the 2018 City of University City calendar.

Here’s what you need to know:

• Submit info and your photos to as an attachment.

The awards ceremony and reception is scheduled for later in the fall. The top three entrants and their photos will be awarded prizes. The photos are judged by the Municipal Arts & Letters Commission members. All decisions are final.
