The Indiana Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology (DHPA) is celebrating Historic Preservation Month by holding its annual Historic Preservation Month photo contest. Even though we’ve been doing this for over a decade, we still get photos of historic resources that we’ve never seen before. Sure we’ve had some repeat subjects over the years but for the most part Hoosiers surprise us with the variety of subjects we’re lucky enough to have in Indiana. Do you have a favorite building—the church your grandparents got married in, your grade school, that old bridge that was the last landmark before you got to your regular vacation destination? Take a picture (or three) of your favorite historic resource—building, bridge, cemetery, landscape– and send it in. It doesn’t matter what it is as long as it is at least 50 years old and in Indiana.
The basic requirements are:
- Images must be 8×10 prints, mounted or matted on or with a white 11×14 matte board.
- The registration form must be attached to each photo
- Limit of three (3) photos per person
For a complete list of guidelines and the registration form, go to http://www.in.gov/dnr/historic/3994.htm
Photos must be submitted by April 3, 2015.
