The 2021 Photo Contest is now happening! Vote daily for your favorites through March 9.

View entries and vote:

Each category winner will receive a one-year complimentary Supporting membership in the AIA and top photos (selected by AIA staff) will be featured in the 2022 AIA Calendar. All proceeds for the sale of the AIA Calendar benefits the Institute’s Site Preservation Program.

Tip: To increase the chance of having one of your photos featured in the 2022 AIA Calendar, we encourage you to submit photos with horizontal orientation and a resolution of 300 dpi or higher.

Whether or not you submit your photos to the contest, we encourage everyone to share your photos with the AIA Community and the public when you use the hashtag #AIAintheField on Twitter and Instagram.

The AIA is dedicated to promoting archaeology to the wider public. Our commitment to public outreach is evident in the hundreds of public events we organize each year including lectures, archaeology fairs, the Annual Meeting, and the emphasis of the Site Preservation Program.
