Who Can Apply: In keeping with the Code of Ethics of the AIA, which emphasizes the need for archaeologists to publish the results of field research, the Anna Marguerite McCann Award for Fieldwork Reports Committee will recommend, in time for presentation of the award at the Annual Meeting of the Institute, a report on fieldwork (e.g. excavation and/or survey), that it deems most worthy of recognition in that year. Works nominated may be either single volumes or series, single- or multi-authored, or edited. Works bearing a date of publication within the four calendar years prior to (not including) the year of the Annual Meeting at which the award is made will be eligible for consideration. Authors/editors of successful nominations must join the AIA as a member, if they are not already one, once they receive the award. For multi-authored or multi-edited volumes, this requirement applies only to the primary author/primary editor/principal investigator.
AIA members are encouraged to suggest publications worthy of the award by filling out the Nomination Form. Authors and publishers may also bring their books to the committee’s attention by filling out the Nomination Form and sending an electronic copy (eBook or PDF) for distribution to the committee to the email address below. Publishers should nominate no more than two (2) books per year and should ensure that the books meet the criteria of the award. Books may be submitted for the award only once, and should not be re-submitted unless specifically requested by the committee.
Submission: Letters of nomination and publications should be received by March 15.
Deadline: March 15, 2022
