GLEN JEAN, WV (WOAY) — It’s time for the 2018 Hidden History Photo Contest, where the rich cultural heritage of southern West Virginia is revealed through photography.

 

Capture stories of the past with a creative eye and a camera, sharing the diverse history preserved in this region’s National and State Parks, the National Coal Heritage Area, as well as in our own back yards. Prizes will be awarded and winning photos will be displayed at Tamarack, online, and in heritage museums throughout southern West Virginia.

Contest entry deadline: August 6, 2018. This free contest is open to West Virginia amateur photographers, adult and youth. Photographs can be entered in several history-based subject categories and must be taken within the specified contest area. The 2018 contest also features a Scenic River category in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act (1968 – 2018).
