The annual photo contest rewards scholars for the best photos from their fieldwork. These photos are judged in terms of their content, synthesis, and visually compelling insights about nationalism, ethnicity, or migration. The photo submissions should be accompanied by a brief description (300-400 words) of how the photo relates to the fieldwork of the applicant in particular and nationalism, ethnicity or migration in general. This is the second year of the photo contest.
The contest is judged by a jury comprised of leading scholars from the editorial board of Nationalities Papers. The membership of the jury changes every year, and is led by the editor-in-chief of the journal and supported by the managing editor. The 6 prize-winning photographs will be featured on the cover of Nationalities Papers. The photographer(s) will be acknowledged in the journal.
