SAFN is once again organizing a food/nutrition photo contest for Anthropology Day (February 16). If you have food anthropology related photos that you want to be famous, SAFN wants to hear from you! Our goal is to collect and recognize some of the best pictures that illustrate what anthropology can show about people, food, and the world, by publishing them here.

This is meant to be both a fun and creative opportunity for SAFN members to show off their skills. We will select at least 3 winners (who knows, maybe there will just be a slew of great submissions, in which case we reserve the right to select more winners) and put their pictures up on the blog. We are looking for pictures that somehow connect with the idea of the anthropology of food and nutrition. Of course, that is very broad. We will favor photos that help us see the work and lives of humans related to food.

Want to see who won in the past? The 2022 winners are here and the 2021 winners are here.

Keep in mind that the only award is the glory of having your photos posted on this site. You must be a member of SAFN to be eligible to win this contest (membership is very affordable, especially for students, so join us!). All photos must be original work and you must have rights to use the photos. We will accept individual photos or a group as an entry (please indicate if you mean for the group to be a series that goes together). Using the photos must not infringe on any other person or organization’s trademark, copyright, moral or intellectual rights, or privacy. You must submit a caption with the photo, indicating the subject, authorship, date, and any other relevant information for the blog. The deadline for submission is February 16, 2023. Photos will be judged by a group of SAFN board members. The winners will be posted to the blog shortly after Anthropology Day. Send your photos to with the subject line “anthro day photos.” (It is essential you do that so that your emails get properly sorted.)

NOTE: SAFN board members are not eligible to participate…we need you to help judge the contest.
