Recognizing Excellence in Practitioner Anthropology

THE 2019 PRAXIS AWARD COMPETITION

Since 1981, the Washington Association of Professional Anthropologists’ (WAPA) biennial Praxis Award competition has recognized outstanding achievement in translating anthropological knowledge into action as reflected in a single project or specific endeavor. Ideal award candidates are anthropologists who can demonstrate the value of anthropological knowledge, theory and methods to solve problems addressed through public and/or private sector efforts (e.g., government, industry, or non-profit).

Award recipients will receive a $1000 prize and will be recognized at a Praxis Award ceremony and reception at the 2020 meeting of the Society for Applied Anthropology. For further information, requirements, and a list of past award recipients, please see https://wapadc.org/praxis. A brief pre-application (2 pages) is encouraged. Both the pre-application and full application templates are available on the Praxis Awards Guidelines page.

The competition is open to anyone holding an MA or PhD in any subfield of anthropology. WAPA strongly encourages submissions from individuals, mixed-discipline groups, or organizations where at least one anthropologist worked on and influenced the designated project. Entries are encouraged from anthropologists worldwide. All entries will be evaluated by an expert panel of anthropological practitioners.

  • Optional pre-application deadline: July 1, 2019
  • Full application deadline: September 1, 2019
  • Awardees and other applicants notified: January 2020
