DNR Photo Contest Celebrates 10 Years

Help celebrate the 10th birthday of the DNR Division of Historic Preservation and Archaelogy’s photo contest by entering the competition! The division is hoping to break their record for photo submissions, currently at 187 photos.

The photo contest celebrates Historic Preservation Month in May. Photographers are encouraged to take pictures of their favorite historic resource — from buildings, to bridges, to cemeteries and landscapes. Subject matter must be at least 50 years old and in Indiana.

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 mat board so final dimensions are 11 x 14 inches.

The contest deadline is April 4. The contest is free, and photographers can submit up to three entries per person. A list of guidelines and the registration form is at dnr.IN.gov/historic/3994.htm.
