The Department of Natural Resources Division of Historic Preservation & Archaeology's photo contest is celebrating its 10th anniversary.

The photo contest celebrates Historic Preservation Month in May. The record for photo submissions is 187 photos and the division wants to break it.

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 located 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 8x10 inches and matted with white mat board so final dimensions are 11x14 inches.

The contest is free, and photographers can submit up to three entries per person. Submission deadline is April 4.

A list of guidelines and the registration form is available at
