Calling All Photographers

 

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the 10 Most Endangered Historic Places in Mississippi Program, the Mississippi Heritage Trust is partnering with Due South Co-op to host a photography exhibition that captures the beauty, mystery and promise of Mississippi’s fragile architectural legacy.


 

 Here’s the deal:

  • Photographers are invited to submit up to 10 images of places listed as one of Mississippi’s 10 Most Endangered Historic Places since 1999.  A list of these 110 sites can be found below. For a more in-depth look, you can found out more about them on our site under Past Lists.

  • The entry fee is $30 per submission, with proceeds going to help the Mississippi Heritage Trust in its work to save and renew places meaningful to Mississippians and their history.

  • Deadline for submissions is 11:59pm on August 20, 2019.

  • Due South Co-op, a collaboration between photographers Ashleigh Coleman, David McCarty, Ellen Rodgers, Ryan Steed and Katie Steed, will curate an exhibition from submitted images that will be displayed at the announcement of the 2019 list of the 10 Most Endangered Places in Mississippi, to be held on Thursday, October 24th at the Morris Ice Company in Jackson. 

  • Photographers whose work is selected will be honored guests at the announcement event.

  • The selected works will be auctioned during the announcement event.  Photographers will receive 30% of the proceeds from the sale of their work.

  • A digital exhibition will be shared on www.10mostms.com following the announcement event.

 

So, pick up your camera and help commemorate twenty years of fighting for the places that tell the story of Mississippi.
