Historic Preservation Photography Contest


Frank Sauer—Most Artistic 2019
Crown Hill Cemetery Gates & Waiting Station in Indianapolis


Ring in the new year and decade by entering a revamped historic preservation photo contest.

The annual contest, run by the DNR Division of Historic Preservation & Archaeology, has been held since 2005 using a traditional print format to promote Indiana’s historic resources. While the purpose remains the same, this year the contest is moving to accepting only digital
submissions; printed photos will not be accepted.

As in previous years, all subjects of photos must be of resources that were built/designed (versus natural resources) at least 50 years old and in Indiana. Photos can be black and white or color and must have been taken within the last two years. Each photographer may enter up to three images, and an entry form is required for each photo.

Images should be emailed to and must be JPEG files that are 10mb or smaller. Participants will only be able to send one photo and one entry form per email. Please do not use screenshots of photos/entry forms, and do not use file sharing (like googledocs).

Participants will need to select one of five contest categories on the entry form in which to enter their photo:

  • Color
  • Black & White
  • Kids (younger than age 18)
  • Artistic
  • Altered Image

Go to for parameters of the Altered Image category, contest guidelines, and the entry form.

The entry deadline is April 3.
