Global Health Student
Photography Contest

EGHI's Global Health Student Photography Contest fosters cultural sensitivity by encouraging Emory students conducting global health projects to examine the culture and people with whom they are working. In addition to capturing both a global health message and creating a photographic work of art, EGHI also asks Emory students to consider ethical issues when taking pictures of people in low- and middle-income countries.

For the 2017 contest, photographs must be taken between 9/1/16 and 9/1/17.

The submission deadline for the 2017 contest is Friday, September 22, 2017.

For more information, please visit our website or contact Suzanne Mason at smason@emory.edu.
