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 2012 Photo Contest aims to highlight our state’s heritage while recognizing the talented photographers that capture the heritage.
Have you submitted your entry yet? If not, click your winning image and go to www.heritageohio.org/programs/2012-photo-contest/ to submit your entry.
We’ll accept entries through Friday, May 4, choose our finalists, and open the online voting for the winner on May 9, when we open our Annual Conference in Toledo (another great Preservation Month activity you should check out if you can). Online voting closes on May 16 and we’ll announce the winning entry on May 18.
Some guidelines to remember:
- 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
- We encourage photos that bring attention to current issues in preservation and revitalization
- We also encourage photos depicting historic buildings in use
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!
For the last couple years we’ve been able to add a nice perk for everyone attending our annual conference: a conference flash drive containing conference session presentations. This year we’re happy to announce that all attendees will once again receive a conference flash drive, thanks to the generous support of conference sponsor McGladrey.
Each 2GB flash drive has ample capacity for our session presentations. Plus, you can add your own files (such as powerpoints, word documents, or images) without having to erase the existing files, up to the 2GB capacity.
Even if you haven’t yet registered for the conference, we do still have space available. Click here to go our website and register for the conference!
Aaron Domini of OHM & John Grossmann with EG&G Inc. discuss the importance of education, regulation, public spaces and the role of the Design committee in Ohio Main Street Communities at our Annual Revitalization Conference May 8-10 in Toledo.
