In 2010, the National Park Service celebrates the eleventh anniversary of the National Historic Landmark Photo Contest. The past decade has brought them over 1,000 incredible images from almost every state in the union. These images were submitted by people from all walks of life who care for and cherish these special places that represent our American story. Many images were submitted by owners or caretakers. Many others were submitted by visitors, both from the United States and abroad.
The contest name, “Imaging Our National Heritage” encourages people to use their cameras to capture the meaning of the National Historic Landmark in a photo. We hope you’re inspired to visit our nation’s National Historic Landmarks, seek out the stories that have formed our American history, and create your own image to share.
On this, the 11th anniversary, they hope to welcome hundreds of outstanding photos, many picturing landmarks that have not previously been part of the contest. National Park Service employees nationwide will vote to select the winning images.
For the first time, they will be administering the NHL Photo Contest through our Group on Flickr. Please click here to join the fun.
