Life in Lockdown

During the COVID-19 pandemic, individuals all around the world have found themselves in ‘lockdown’. In many cases this has meant only leaving your home for essential reasons, following social distancing rules and only socialising with members of your household.

2020 has brought many changes to our lives, with virtual means of communicating being more important than ever. Some individuals have found themselves with more free time and others have had to shift their focus to deal with issues that have arisen from the outbreak. We have a global alumni community and want you to feel supported by LSHTM, and each other.

We are asking you, as our alumni, to share one or two images that represents your lockdown experience. This could involve hobbies you have been doing, virtual activities, your working routine, or anything that you feel represents your time in lockdown.

Your images could be used on our social media platforms, on our alumni blog or in our annual alumni magazine. Please send your image(s) to with your full name, a caption for each image and the subject line ‘life in lockdown’.


If identifiable individuals appear in your photo, please ensure that you have their permission before submission.

Please provide a caption for your photos, this will be included in the Alumni magazine and may appear in other print and digital publications, and on social media. The caption may be edited.

Entries may be selected to appear on the School’s website, Flickr page and social media platforms, which are open to the public.

Entries may be used for promotional purposes e.g. School website, social media, annual report, Chariot, prospectus, exhibitions, postcards and others.

Copyright – by entering the competition, competitors warrant that they own the copyright in their photograph and they give consent to the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine to store the image and reproduce it in any School-related publication or medium.
