ACHP Announces Photo Contest for National Historic Preservation Month

Now Open for Entries, Weekly Winners Through Month of May

In celebration of National Historic Preservation Month in May, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) is hosting a photo contest encouraging people to share pictures of themselves, family, or friends at their favorite or most personally meaningful historic place.

Beginning May 1, contestants may enter by posting the photo directly on the ACHP Facebook page with the hashtag #MyHistoricPlace, or on the individual’s own Twitter or Instagram by tagging @USACHP and using the same hashtag. Entries should also contain a brief caption that includes the name and location of the historic place.

Weekly winners will be announced on the ACHP’s social media sites each Thursday beginning May 9. Anyone may cast one vote per week at the contest page to select their favorite entry. Each week’s winner will receive a historic preservation prize package.
