Happy Preservation Month to you! Each May preservation organizations across the country, including Heritage Ohio, celebrate historic preservation with special events and activities. Our Preservation Month 2013 Photo Contest will focus on Saving Ohio’s Treasures. We want to see you with the places that matter in your life and the places you want to see preserved for future generations of Ohioans. We’ve created a special sign for you to hold in your photos, which you can print off from our website.
We’ll accept entries through Friday, April 26, 2013, choose our finalists, and open the online voting for the winner on May 1, when we open our Annual Conference in Columbus (another great Preservation Month activity you should check out if you can). Online voting closes on May 22 and we’ll announce the winning entry on May 23.
Some guidelines to remember:
Again this year, we’ll feature the winning entry on the cover of Revitalize Ohio, so here’s your chance for Ohio photographic fame. Good luck!
- The subject matter of the photo must be physically located in Ohio
- Judging criteria for choosing photo finalists include originality, subject matter, and artistic merit
- Photos should highlight historic locations that merit being preserved as an Ohio Treasure
- We also encourage photos depicting historic buildings in use
