A good photo says more than a thousand words. Looking at our FMG archives, we've realised there's sadly little picture material to use in our communications. Do you take great photos? Then enter our photo competition!

Whether it's for our website, brochures or press releases, it's important to have just the right image. Could the picture we're looking for be waiting in your archives? We would love to receive your best pictures of projects, excursions and other relevant occasions or events. You may even have some holiday snaps that we could use in our publications!


Submissions will be judged by a jury (FMG Communication) on the following criteria:

  • The submitted photos conform to the guidelines for image material laid down in the UvA corporate identity guide
  • Keywords are: bold, focus, passion and Amsterdam
  • No black/white photos 
  • You must have taken the photo yourself


If individuals are recognisable in a photo of a research project, for example, you must first obtain permission for public use of the photo from the subject(s) before submitting it.


The winner of the photo competition will receive a year's subscription to FOAM Magazine, the award-winning international photography magazine.
