#PublicHealthLooksLike: a photo competition to celebrate and bring to life public health in all its forms

View the shortlisted photos here!


In July, FPH launched a photo competition to celebrate what public health looks like. The aim of the competition was to encourage our members, the wider health and care community, and professional and amateur photographers to capture powerful images that bring to life the incredible breadth and diversity of public health.

When will the winners be chosen?

The competition has now closed but our judging panel met on 13 November and agreed on a shortlist of their favourite photos. From there, FPH members voted for their favourite entries and the ten winners will be announced at the end of January.

Who was on the judging panel?

Our judges are photography and public health experts who we're proud to have on board to choose our shortlist of photos. Click here to read more about the judging panel.

What are the prizes? 

We're really excited to announce that the ten winning photos will be displayed at a photography exhibition in Spring 2019 and a virtual exhibition that will be housed on our website. This means that if you took one of the winnings photos, it will be seen by a huge number of people and used to illustrate public health for years to come.

In addition to that, all of the photos will be celebrated in a special edition of the FPH e-bulletin which is distributed to all of our members, and you'll be given the opportunity to get involved in comms. There will also be additional prizes available for the people who take the three best photos, which will be as follows:

  • The winning entry: £250 cash prize and a year's free FPH membership 
  • Two ‘highly commended’ entries: £100 each and a year's free FPH membership

Please keep an eye on this page, our Twitter feed and our e-bulletin for updates.

*Please note that the two 'highly commended' entries will win a free year's Associate Membership. If you're already a member of FPH, the value of an Associate Membership will be deducted from your fees.
