National Historic Landmarks 2011 Photo Contest

Submission deadline: July 31, 2011.

Information from the National Park Service web site:

In 2011, we celebrate the 12th anniversary of the National Historic Landmark Photo Contest. The past decade has brought us 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, 100 Days of NHLs, begins April 22; all entries – one per landmark, up to 10 total – must be submitted by July 31. Winning entries will be featured in the National Historic Landmark 2012 Event Planner.

“Not all national historic landmarks are battlefields, high-style architecture, or associated with the Founding Fathers,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “But all are places with extraordinary significance to our American story. Through the photo contest we invite people to explore these amazing places and to share their favorites.”

On this, our 12th anniversary, we welcome hundreds of outstanding photos of unexpected and incomparable landmarks. National Park Service employees nationwide will vote to select the winning images. Last year’s winners are highlighted above.

This will be our second year administering the NHL Photo Contest through our Group on Flickr. View this year’s entries on Flickr here:
