Indiana DNR seeks photos of historic structures


INDIANAPOLIS — An annual state-sponsored photo contest focusing on historic structures is underway, with submissions due April 5.
The contest, conducted by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Historic Preservation & Archaeology, is open to people of all ages and skill levels.
The contest started in 2005 to promote Indiana’s historic resources.
All structures in photo entries must be at least 50 years old and located in Indiana.
Photos can be black and white or color and must have been taken within the past two years.
Photos of exclusively natural elements will not be accepted.
New this year is a category highlighting the annual theme of Historic Preservation Month (May). This year, the theme is Indiana’s historic scholastic gymnasiums.
People can enter up to three images along with the required respective entry form for each photo.
Images should be emailed to [email protected] and must be JPEG files that are 10 MB or smaller. Participants should send only one photo and one entry form per email.
