The Rachel Tanur Memorial Prize for Visual Sociology recognizes students in the social sciences who incorporate visual analysis in their work. The contest is open worldwide to undergraduate and graduate students (majoring in any social science). It is named for Rachel Dorothy Tanur (1958-2002), an urban planner and lawyer who cared deeply about people and their lives and was an acute observer of living conditions and human relationships.
