Photos should be from the 2021 calendar year and individuals featured in the photo must have provided consent to be photographed. Any individual or organization can submit up to 5 photos. This contest is open to all individuals and organizations, not limited to CORE Group Members.

Email your photos to Avani Duggaraju, Communications and Knowledge Management Coordinator, at with the following information:

1. Your name.
2. Your organization (if applicable).
3. A 1–2 sentence caption for each photo is required. Please include the location where the photo was taken.

If your photos are too large to send by email, please upload them to Google Drive, Dropbox, WeTransfer, or any other sharing site, and include links to the photos in your email.


CORE Group Staff will select the winner based on visual composition and how the program/project the photo is showcasing has been influenced in some way by CORE Group’s work. Examples include programs that benefited 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

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 future Global Health Practitioner Conferences. 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.
