Photo Contest: Picturing Plano’s Past

UPDATE: Deadline extended to May 29!

May is Historic Preservation Month, a time dedicated to promoting heritage tourism and the benefits of historic preservation. While Hike Through History was cancelled this year, we have a fun virtual event planned: the Picturing Plano’s Past Photo Contest!

Presented by the Plano Conservancy, the contest is open to all. Grab your camera and shoot some photos that tell the story of Plano’s history.

Photos must relate to Plano history and must include a caption (50 words or less) describing where the photo was taken and its connection to Plano’s past.

Photos should be minimally edited for color or exposure only, no photo manipulations. 

Photos will be judged on photo quality, creativity, and the photo’s ability to tell a story about Plano history.

One winning photographer’s work will be selected for each of these three categories:

Historic Home

Historic Building

Historic Cemetery

Historic Cemetery
Historic House
Historic Buildings

Prizes: Copies of Hidden History of Plano and Haunted Plano.To Enter: Send your photo as an attachment (JPG format, no more than 4 MB) to:

Deadline is 5 p.m. Central time on Friday, May 29, 2020.  Please submit one photo per email to ensure that the files do not exceed email size limits. Multiple entries are accepted, however, there is a limit of one prize per individual entering the contest. Entries unrelated to Plano or submitted without captions will not be considered. Photos should be current (i.e. taken within the last two years.)
