Snap That Sign is a statewide photo crowdsourcing campaign that asks participants to help put their community “on the map” by taking pictures of historic markers funded by the Pomeroy Foundation. The Pomeroy Foundation’s website has a list of specific historic markers that need to be photographed for Snap That Sign 2021. The photo submission deadline is Monday, May 31st.
Photos selected will be added to individual marker listings on the Pomeroy Foundation’s interactive marker map, and will provide a greater visual context about each marker and its location. All participants will receive a Pomeroy Foundation historic marker pin as a thank you.
Instructions for participating in Snap That Sign 2021 are as follows:
- Browse this list of Pomeroy markers that need to be photographed.
- Review the photography guidelines and photo-taking tips to ensure your photos will be eligible.
- Email your photos to email@example.com by Monday, May 31st, and share on social media using the hashtag #SnapThatSign
