We're no longer accepting submissions for the 2020 Photo Contest. We'll begin accepting submission for next year's contest in August 2021.
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 range of careers imaginable, and we want to highlight 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.
Contestants may submit up to four photos of their work. Along with your photograph, please include a brief caption for your work. 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 that 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. Show us your work in the field, lab, or classroom. Please note that photographs may not portray any nudity or illicit activity. You are more than welcome to submit up to four 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 2021 AAA calendar.
To be considered for the AAA Calendar, photos must be saved and uploaded correctly. The photos need to be named last name underscore photo number, example: LastName_Photo1
