JHL Photo Contest Submissions

Thank you for your interest in submitting one or more photos to the 2020 JHL Photo Contest.

JHL Cover Photo Contest 2019

Every year, the Journal of Human Lactation (JHL) hosts a photo contest for the coveted cover spot for the four issues published during the coming year. The annual photo contest is your opportunity to contribute to the journal and highlight your community.

We are seeking photos illustrating lactation professionals’ education role, which could be an individual teaching session, leading a group session or many other possibilities.


  • Photos need to meet our publication requirements (dpi 300 x 300; jpeg file, and at least 4” tall and wide).
  • A photo release is required from all persons in the photo and these needs to be submitted with the photo (see "Required Forms" section below)
  • The photographer will need to sign non-exclusive copyright – in other words, allowing JHL to use the photo, but the photographer is free to use it elsewhere as one chooses (see "Required Forms" section below)

Deadline – 1 September 2019: no exceptions

Please note that all information collected will be used by ILCA and JHL staff and volunteers to evaluate photo contest submissions and contact applicants.
