Call for Submissions: UW Global Health Photo Contest

Submit your photos now!

Are you a global health advisory, student, faculty, staff or partner? Have you participated in a Global Health Institute sponsored event, course, research, or field experience nationally and/or abroad? Do you have photos you believe represent the GHI’s mission and vision?

We are excited to announce the Global Health Photo Contest! In connection with the opening of our new central campus office, we are holding this contest to celebrate the experiences of our faculty, collaborators, and students throughout the years, and to personalize the new space.

We will be picking thirteen photos to be printed and hung in the new office space. Each winning photo will be paired with a description and the photographer’s names.photocontest

If you are interested in entering, the competition will run until Sunday, October 27th and final submissions must be in by 11:59pm. You will be able to upload as many as three photos, and each must be paired with a 100-word description. We will be judging based on appropriateness of the theme, as well as general visual appeal. The winners will be revealed at the Grand Opening of our new space on November 19th. High-resolution photos are preferred.

In the mean time: Please come and see our new space, and find out more information about the Undergraduate and graduate certificate programs, field courses and GHI research and engagement around the world. Our secondary location is at 1050 Medical Science Center (along with our office 4256 Health Science Learning Center), which will be at the end of the hall if you turn left when you enter from the front door past the Statistics Department.

Our Mission: The Global Health Institute views the health of individuals and populations through a holistic context of healthy places upon which public health depends. This approach requires collaboration to address health care, food security and sustainable agriculture, water and sanitation, environmental sustainability, and “one health” perspectives that integrate the health of humans, animals and the environment.
