Alumni end of year photo competition

We are delighted to announce the return of our popular Alumni Photo Competition.

We are asking for images describing what you have been up to in 2021. 

This could involve working the field, from home, activities you have been up to or anything you would like to share! We would like to create a picture of our global LSHTM alumni community throughout this year. 

All you have to do is submit a photo and caption, along with your name, course and graduation year. 

One winner will be chosen to receive a parcel of goodies from LSHTM and their photo will be featured in next year’s magazine, which is distributed to thousands of alumni around the world annually.

The deadline for submitting photos is Friday 31 December. Entries should be emailed to with the subject line 'Alumni Photo Competition 2021'.

Competition guidelines

Alumni may enter a maximum of six photographs. Only alumni of the School may enter the competition.

Entries must be in JPEG format and emailed to with 'Alumni Photo Competition' in the subject line.

In the email please include: your full name; the date the photograph was taken; course studied at the School and year graduated; an up-to-date phone number; and your current job position and organisation if applicable (only your full name, course studied and year graduated will be made public).

Please provide a caption for your photos (maximum 40 words) – this will be included in the Alumni magazine and may appear in other print and digital publications and on social media. The caption may be edited.

If identifiable individuals appear in your photo, please ensure that you have their permission before submission. You may be asked to provide written consent of any identifiable individuals granting permission us to use the photograph in the Alumni magazine, in other print and digital publications and on social media.

Photos must be in colour only and have been taken in 2021.

All entries will appear on the School’s photo library, Asset Bank, which is accessible to School staff and students, and the Alumni Flickr page, which is open to the public.

Entries may be selected to appear on the LSHTM website and social media platforms, which are open to the public.

The entries may appear in the 2022 edition of the School’s annual alumni magazine, Alumni News.

Entries may be used for promotional purposes e.g. LSHTM website, social media, annual report, chariot, prospectus, exhibitions, postcards and others.


By entering the competition, competitors warrant that they own the copyright in their photograph and they give consent to the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine to store the image and reproduce it in any School-related publication or medium.
