We’re not currently accepting applications for the Anthropology Photo Contest. Feel free to check out the 2023 winners and please check back for information on the 2024 contest.

Anthropologists work all around the world in a diverse range of careers, and we want to highlight them. Photographs can be anything you believe relates to your work, in the field, lab, or classroom. In addition to being featured on the AAA website and social media accounts, select photo contest images will be featured in the AAA Annual Report and the Anthropology News print edition.

Anthropology Photo Contest Guidelines:

  • Applicants must be a current member of the AAA at the time of submission.
  • Photo contestants may submit up to three photos of their work, but only one will potentially be featured in the calendar.
  • For each photo please include a title, caption that provides information on when, where, why the photographer made the photo, how the image relates to the field of anthropology, and an image description that provides access
