National Park Service call for entries

The National Park Service (NPS) was created over 100 years ago to preserve and protect America’s most significant natural and cultural resources. With over 40 programs, from National Historic Landmarks to National Trails, the National Park Service’s work extends beyond park boundaries. This year the National Historic Landmarks Program plans to highlight some of the special places in and around Savannah, GA, that are associated with NPS programs. We are sponsoring a photo contest to collect images of these places. The winning entries will be featured in our upcoming Discover Savannah Brochure.
We are searching for a photo that captures the essence of Savannah (not limited to the sites included in the contest) as well as images of each of the 13 sites included in the contest. For full contest rules, including the list of included sites, visit go.nps.gov/SavannahPhotos.


We look forward to seeing Savannah through your eyes! If you have questions, please contact us at Savannah_Photos@nps.gov
