Health in focus: 2017 Highlights photography competition is open for submissions

'Photographs are an immediate and compelling way to communicate—they can entertain, educate, inspire, outrage, or move us. They can be a powerful way to focus on important health stories and capture and make permanent those fleeting moments that matter in medicine. The Lancet's annual photography competition, Highlights, is now open for entries. We are looking for striking, original pictures on any health topic, from clinical medicine to global health, from the individual person to populations. Some of the winning photographs in last year's competition highlighted the need for clean water and surgery in Africa and the plight of refugees with mental disorders.'
