Capture history

From the Indiana Department of Natural Resources:

Historic Preservation & Archaeology sponsors a photo contest for Preservation Month, which is held nationally in May. Photos should be of something in Indiana that is “historic.” “Historic” is anything at least 50 years old. There is a limit of three entries per person. The contest deadline is April 6.

In terms of what to photograph, we aren’t picky - your house, Grandma’s house, a cemetery, Main Street, a simple log cabin, an elaborate stained glass window. It’s whatever you find interesting. Some of the most dramatic photos in years past have been a building in the process of being demolished. Those make us sad although they help us get the message out.

Please read the following contest guidelines then click on the link below to open a printable web form that must accompany your submission.

DHPA’s Historic Preservation Month Photo Contest guidelines are as follows:

  • Photographers must fill out entry form for each photo and attach to photo (limit of 3 photos per photographer).
  • Deadline is April 6, 2012.
  • Subject of image must be in Indiana and be at least 50 years old.
  • Images can be black and white or color and should be current (taken within the last 2 years).
  • Images must be 8x10 prints, mounted or matted on or with a white 11x14 matte board.
NOTE: Images will not be returned. Photos may be used for office displays and promotions for the photo contest, Historic Preservation Month and historic preservations, in general. Photos will not be used in for-profit publications. Photographs will be judged by a panel consisting of representatives from the DNR and other preservationists and/or photographers. Selected photos from all photo contests will be displayed in several locations throughout the state during May.
