Our Preservation Month Photo Contest is Open for Entries!

Preservation Month is just around the corner and our 8th Annual Preservation Month Photo Contest is now open for entries! We’re looking for great subject matter capturing the spirit of preservation & revitalization in our communities.

This year’s theme is “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words.” We’re looking for photos that can tell us a good preservation story and convey a message of the importance of preservation & revitalization in Ohio.

When you get that perfect shot, submit it to us. We have a limit of one entry per person, so you have to send us your very best! You can enter here (we have the form at the bottom of the page) or post your entry on our Facebook wall using the hashtag #heritageohiophotocontest. You can also enter through Instagram, again using the hashtag #heritageohiophotocontest.

Some important contest dates to remember:
Friday, April 28-Friday, May 26 | Photo entries accepted
Friday, June 2 | Finalists unveiled and online voting begins
Friday, June 9 | Online voting ends
Monday, June 12 | We announce the winning photo

As with past years, we’ll feature the contest winner’s photo on the cover of Revitalize Ohio. Plus, you get bragging rights for maybe having the coolest preservation photo in Ohio!

Don’t forget: our theme is “A picture is worth a thousand words” so make sure you convey your image’s story on the entry form you complete. Be creative and original with your photo composition…we love photo entries depicting historic buildings in use. Make sure your image highlights Ohio subject matter. And finally, use your best judgment as to whether or not you should get permission from the building owner before photographing your subject matter.

Our 2016 winner, Carl E. Feather, captured The Night Train Approaching Ashtabula.


Good luck!
