Established in 1987, the AIME recognizes successful communication of anthropology to the general public through the media. It seeks to honor those who have raised public awareness of anthropology and have had a broad and sustained public impact at local, national, and international levels. The AIME Award is designed to increase awareness of the significant contributions anthropologists have made and will make to society and recognize those who have successfully done so. By allowing the general public access to the study and profession of anthropology we facilitate contribution to and understanding of the field of anthropology itself. Please take this opportunity to offer a recommendation of someone whom you feel is deserving of this award. The awardee is given a certificate at the AAA Annual Meeting.
There are no eligibility restrictions, and the award is given annually.
The nomination packet should not exceed 25 pages.
Please note that nominees are considered for three years. Those not chosen in the first year will be considered for two more years.
Submission Deadline: March 2022
