AIA Photo Contest Winners
October 2, 2011

The Cover of the 2012 AIA Calendar

In the AIA’s first online photo contest, nearly 100 photos were submitted in August and September for a chance to win a year long AIA membership and placement on the cover of the AIA 2012 calendar.  Photos were divided into 8 categories: Calendar Cover Finalists, Archaeology is Teamwork, Tools of the Trade, Fabulous Finds, Architecture, Archaeological Landscapes, Sunsational, and Life of an Archaeologist.

In 10 days of voting over 12,000 votes were cast—the winner of each category will receive a complimentary year’s membership to the AIA, which includes a subscription to Archaeology magazine.  The AIA would like to thank everyone that entered the contest and encourage everyone to keep taking great field photos—they could be next year’s winners!

The final winners are:
