AAA Photo Contest

From Our Sponsors
In This Section


Submissions for the 2016 contest will open in mid-June. In the meantime you can check out the photos from last year's contest for inspiration 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.  In addition to being featured on the AAA website as header images and on AAA's social media accounts, select photo contest images will be featured in a calendar to be distributed at the AAA Annual Meeting. This year's contest will feature a special "migration" submission category to allow members to submit photos that relate to our latest public education initiative World on the Move: 100,000 Years of Human Migration.  

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 2017 AAA calendar, which will be distributed at the AAA Annual Meeting.  Of course, all winners will also be showcased in Anthropology News and on AAA social media.
