It's that time of year again when we ask Lancet readers to submit photographs for our annual Highlights photography competition. We are looking for striking images that arrest our attention about any topic in medicine, from global health to clinical medicine, from the individual person to populations. An image can be a powerful way to tell a story. As we have seen with past Highlights winners, your photographs about the health stories that speak to you capture important moments in clinical and global health. Last year's beautiful selection of winning photographs included images about neonatal care in Africa, the work of midwives in Afghanistan, the life of sex workers in India, and the importance of community health workers in bringing health care to homes. We are interested in photographs from any country and invite readers to submit photographs to Highlights 2015 that capture any health issue in a thought-provoking way. As in previous years, The Lancet and The Lancet Global Health will run the competition together. Winning photographs will be published in The Lancet's fi nal issue of 2015 and might also be selected for the front cover of The Lancet Global Health.
