The ten entries in this year’s “Images Fresh from the Field” competition were all richly deserving of awards, and it was very difficult to choose among them. The judges sought to evaluate the submissions according to their technical, aesthetic, and epistemological features, their visual communication of anthropological ideas or questions, the quality of analytic contextualization provided in the written statements, and the concepts conveyed by juxtaposition of the three submitted photos as a visual set. The judges have awarded the competition prizes as follows:

First Prize (tie):

Anthony Howarth - Fieldwork in Far West Nepal and Beyond

Ed Pulford - Frontiers of History at a Triple Border

Second Prize: Highly commended

Nancy Chu - Novice Nuns in a Taiwanese Buddhist Monastery


All entries will be available to view on the website in due course.
