Anthropolitan | Call for Photographs 2022

Dear students and staff,

We are delighted to write with news of a new departmental photography initiative. We warmly invite submissions from all members of the department—students and staff alike.

The photography initiative is run by Anthropolitan in association with the Anti-Racisms Committee (ARC). Although photos can be on any theme—as long as they relate to anthropology in broad terms—we encourage you to think about decolonisation and anti-racism as guiding principles for how we represent or approach our discipline.

  • The deadline for submissions is 1pm on the 11th of July. Please submit entries to Lewis Daly at, with a short caption (100 words max.) and photo attribution (i.e., your name and the date the photo was taken).

Submit your photos for a chance to be exhibited in the department and featured on the Anthropolitan blog. We have space to hang approximately 20 new photos in the department on a rolling basis, so will select as many of submissions as possible to print and frame. The framed photographs will be placed around the department over the coming academic year.

We are also looking for students who are interested in helping with the curation process and a future exhibition in the department. If you are interested in volunteering, please send an expression of interest to Lewis Daly at

As photos will be printed in A2 size, please submit the original (high resolution) image files of your photographs. The following guidelines are preferred but not necessary:

  • A resolution of 12 megapixels, or 7200 x 4800 pixels (see diagram below).
  • Lossless formats such as PNG, BMP, TIFF, and RAW.
