History Happens Here

The State Capitol wants shutterbugs young and old to bring the past into focus. The theme of this contest is “History Happens Here” and amateur photographers are encouraged to take photographs that illustrate what history is to him or her. Photographs must have been taken in the state of North Carolina during the past calendar year to be eligible for entry. Judging will take place by Saturday, March 31, and all photos will remain on display in the Capitol until April 27. Entry packets and complete list of rules are available at the Capitol’s front desk and at www.ncstatecapitol.org. In conjunction with the contest, an exhibit featuring photographs of the State Capitol from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries will be on display on the third floor.

This program is part of “History Happens Here,” a yearlong celebration of history in our state.

** Note from John Setzler, Jr. **

If you don’t have anything suitable to enter into this competition, our club field trip to The North Carolina Transportation Museum is scheduled for Saturday, March 24th.  This would give you some great opportunities to make photos specifically for this competition!  Someone from our camera club should win this contest!
