Photo contest celebrates historic resources

From the Indiana Department of Natural Resources:

The DNR Division of Historic Preservation & Archaeology is sponsoring its ninth annual photo contest to recognize Historic Preservation Month in May.

The subject of the photo must be in Indiana and more than 50 years old. Images could include anything from a cemetery, to a main street, to a grain silo. The contest does not place limitations on the condition of the historic resource. Past entries have involved subject matter with conditions ranging from pristine to undergoing demolition.

Photos can be color or black and white, must be 8 x 10 inches, and matted with white or ivory mat board so final dimensions are 11 x 14 inches. Participants should not frame their photos.

The contest deadline is April 5, 2013.

The contest is free, and photographers can submit up to three entries per person.

Photos will be judged by a panel of DNR representatives, preservationists and photographers.

The deadline to submit is April 6.
