AAA Photo Contest

From Our Sponsors
In This Section


Submissions are now closed for the 2015 contest. Make sure you vote for your favorite photos on the AAA Facebook page!

If you could define your work in a single picture, what would it look like?

AAA members work all around the world, in the most diverse cultures imaginable, and we want to showcase them.  If you attended the Annual Meeting last year, you may have noticed a calendar waiting in your complimentary bag with some truly gorgeous pictures—drawing not just from cultural anthropology, but also archaeology, linguistic, biological and political fields. The 2015 contest submissions will be showcased in another calendar, to be distributed at this year's meeting. 

Submitting?

Contestants may submit their work in one of three categories: people, places, practice.  Along with your photograph, include a caption for your work, and a brief autobiographical statement of no more than 150 words.  Your biography will not affect your likelihood of being featured in the calendar—we just like to learn a little bit more about our active members. Photographs must be your own, and you must be a current member of the AAA.  Winning photos in the calendar will be printed at 11x8, so be sure the resolution is good enough to print at those dimensions.

Photographs can be anything you believe relates to your work; the photographs may not portray any nudity or illicit activity.

You are more than welcome to submit up to 3 photographs, but only one will potentially be featured in the calendar.

After we've processed the photos, we'll put all qualified entries to the membership for a vote. The votes will be tallied, and the top 12 photos, from 12 different members, will be featured in the 2016 AAA calendar, which will be distributed at this year's annual meeting in Denver, CO.  Of course, all winners will also be showcased on our website.
