To celebrate May as National Historic Preservation month, Emporia Main Street will hold a historic photo contest. Three winners will be chosen and receive Main Street gift certificates.

* Photographers must fill out entry form for each photo and attach to photo (limit of 3 photos per photographer).
* The deadline for the contest is April 25th. Submissions must be in the office at the end of the business day. This is not a date stamped deadline.
* Subject of image must be of an Emporia commercial or educational building and be at least 50 years old.
* Images can be black and white or color and should be current (taken within the last 2 years).
* Images must be 8×10 prints and printed on photo paper.
*Photo must be owned and taken by the individual who is entering it.

NOTE: Images will not be returned. Photos may be used for office displays and promotions for the photo contest, Historic Preservation Month and historic preservations, in general. Photographs will be judged by a panel consisting of representatives from Emporia Main Street’s design committee as well as the quantities of likes and shares as we post on our Facebook historic photos page. Selected photos from the photo contest will be displayed in several locations throughout Emporia during the month of May.
