If you could define your work in a single picture, what would it look like?
Anthropologists 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.
Contestants may submit their work in one of four categories: people, places, practice and World on the Move. 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 to be featured in the calendar. Nonmembers are welcome to submit photos which may be used on AAA web platforms and in other publications. (To become a member and be featured in the calendar, click here.) 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 on our Facebook page for a vote. The votes will be tallied, and the top 12 photos, from 12 different members, will be featured in the 2018 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.
The deadline for 2017 submissions was August 31st.
