It’s that time
of year again for CORE Group’s Annual Photo Contest!

We are looking for high quality photos from your global health programs that have been influenced by CORE Group.

All submissions are due by Friday, January 31, 2020 at 11:59 PM EST.


The winning photo will be featured on the homepage of CORE Group’s 2019 annual report website and its copy version. Additionally, the winner will receive one complimentary registration for the next Global Health Practitioner Conference, October 12 – 14, 2020 in Washington, DC, USA.


Who can submit photos:

This contest is open to all individuals and organizations, not limited to CORE Group Members and Associates.

What photos will be accepted:

All photos should be high resolution with a minimum of approximately 1800 x 1400 pixels. Photos should be from the 2019 calendar year. Any individual or organization can submit up to 5 photos. We accept these file types: jpeg, png, tiff.

How photos will be selected:

CORE Group Staff will select the winner based on visual composition (i.e. exposure, focus, lighting) and how the program/project the photo is showcasing has been influenced in some way by CORE Group’s work. Examples include programs that benefitted from any of the following in planning, implementation, or evaluation:

  • a CORE Group tool or resource
  • information gained from a CORE Group conference, webinar, workshop, or training
  • a connection or interaction facilitated by CORE Group in person or online

How photos will be used:

Photo submissions that were not selected as winner may be used on other pages of the annual report or in future CORE Group materials, including the Program Booklet for the 2020 Global Health Practitioner Conference. Photos will always be used in a way that fairly represents the original context. All photos will be credited as: “Photo by [Organization or Individual Name/Organization]” unless otherwise noted.
