Congratulations messages

All faculty, staff, students, families and friends of the Washington University community are invited to share video and photo messages of congratulations and support to the Class of 2020.

Submitted photos and videos will be shared with graduates in Commencement-related communications, as well as displayed during the in-person and live stream ceremonies on Sunday, May 30.

You may download printable signs, if you’d like, and we encourage you to get creative with your photos or videos! 

Submission instructions

Take your photos and videos in horizontal landscape, not vertical.

Sample video

When preparing your submission, please include your name and title/relationship in the file name. If you’re submitting a video, you may also say your name and title at the beginning of your video. For photos, the higher the resolution the better, and the preferred format is .jpeg and .TIFF.

Once your submission is ready, click submit.

By submitting your entry, you are granting permission to Washington University to use your photos and videos in communications related to Commencement.
