The giant dipole resonance (GDR) is a most pronounced feature in the nuclear excitation spectrum giving crucial clues to nuclear structure and dynamics. The upcoming possibility to measure GDR in exotic nuclei  challenges theorists to scrutinize the predictive value of their models. Of particular interest are self-consistent mean field approaches which describe the ground state and the excitation spectrum within one and the same parameterization, for a recent review see e.g. . The additional information from GDR probes otherwise loosely fixed aspects of effective mean-field models. It is the aim of this paper to present an exploration of the GDR in deformed nuclei, computing the excitation spectra using the timedependent Skyrme-Hartree-Fock (SHF) method. The deformation removes the degeneracy of the resonance peak
