The AAA Photo Contest is back! The Photo Contest has been redesigned so that members will vote for the winning photos. To help both the participants and the members who choose to vote, this year’s contest features four categories: people, place, practice and process. Photographers will select which category they think best fits their photo.
Any AAA member will be able to vote for their top photos in each of the 4 categories. The top photos in each category will be on display at the 2011 Annual Meeting in Montreal and published in Anthropology News.
To participate, please note the following guidelines:
Participants must be current AAA members
Each participant may submit up to 2 photos
Each photo will include a title and brief caption that emphasizes its relationship to anthropology
Each photo must be from 2009 or later. Previously submitted photos do not qualify.
Each photo must be high resolution (300 dpi or more) so it can be printed for display at the annual meeting and in AN
Participants will select 1 of 4 categories for each photo: People, Place, Practice, Process
The Photo Contest will open June 15 and will accept submissions through August 15. After the contest closes, AN staff will review the photos to ensure that each photo meets our technical requirements and guidelines, including a clear relationship to anthropology. Voting will open in mid-September and will last approximately four weeks.
The AAA Photo Contest is designed to encourage members to share their field experiences and demonstrate the breadth of anthropological work through photography. The impressive array of photos received in the past illustrates the diverse and exciting work anthropologists are pursuing today, as well as the insights that AAA members have to offer. Please visit our 2009 results page and 2008 results pages for details about past contests, or look at the photos in the AN Flickr gallery.
