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).
  • The deadline for the contest is the first Friday of April. Submissions must be in the office at the end of the business day. This is not a date stamped deadline.
  • 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.
