All graduands are photographed and filmed on stage as they are congratulated by the Chancellor. The University contracts a private photographic company for this purpose. Information about photographs and DVDs for graduation periods is available here

Shortly after leaving the stage, graduands are provided details on how to order photographs. Graduation portraits can be taken before or after the ceremony. The photography studios are located in the Michie Building adjacent the Great Court. Similar services are provided for graduands attending the Gatton graduation ceremonies.

Due to space restrictions, graduands are reminded that other commercial photographers are not permitted inside venues and guests are encouraged not to take photographs themselves during the ceremony in consideration of other audience members.

From time to time, the University's Office of Marketing and Communications will arrange for photographs of honorary doctors, guest speakers and graduates of interest for publication in UQ News and/or Graduate Contact magazine or for wider marketing purposes.

For information about these photographs, please contact OMC on telephone 07 3365 3367 approximately one week after your ceremony to view proofs and perhaps order copies for your own records.
