The American Anthropological Association is pleased to recognize two individuals with the Executive Director's Award for innovative contributions to the field. 

Chip Colwell, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, receives an award for his creative, resourceful, and risk-taking work as founding editor-in-chief of SAPIENS, a digital magazine launched in 2016, and now a podcast series about the human world. SAPIENS is committed to bringing anthropology to a broad public audience. It explores thought-provoking ideas about being human including how we communicate with one another, why we behave kindly and badly, where and when we evolved, our laws, our ethics, our cities, the environment, and much, much more. 
Robert Lemelson, Elemental Productions and UCLA, is recognized for his innovative ethnographic filmmaking and his philanthropy. Lemelson pushed the boundaries of sensory ethnography that is gorgeously affecting, with rich multimedia production values. And, with his generous support, he is committed to the rising generation of promising students and early career anthropologists.
