If you could define your work in a single picture, what
would it look like?
AAA members work all around the world, in the most diverse
cultures imaginable, and we want to showcase them. If you attended the

your complimentary bag with some truly gorgeous pictures—drawing not just from

We'd like to do it again this year, drawing from a new batch
of photographs provided by you, our membership. Photographs can be
anything you believe relates to your work; the photographs may not portray any
nudity or illicit activity.
Contestants may submit their work in one of three
categories: people, places, practice. Along with your photograph, include
a caption for your work, and a brief autobiographical statement of no more than
150 words. Your biography will not affect your likelihood of being
featured in the calendar—we just like to learn a little bit more about our
active members. Photographs must be your own, and you must be a current member
of the AAA. Winning photos in the calendar will be printed at 11x8, so be
sure the resolution is good enough to print at those dimensions.
You may begin submitting your photographs today. You are
more than welcome to submit up to 3 photographs, but only one will potentially
be featured in the calendar. The deadline for entries will be June 30.
After we've processed the photos, we'll put all qualified entries to the
membership for a vote in the late summer. The votes will be tallied, and the
top 12 photos, from 12 different members, will be featured in the 2015 AAA
calendar, which will be distributed at this year's annual meeting in Washington
DC. Of course, all winners will also be showcased on our website.
