Civil War-Era Photos Sought for Poster

The Indiana State Historic Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) is seeking photo submissions for their 2011 Indiana Archives Month poster. This year's theme is Indiana and the Civil War. Any Indiana resident or entity with an original photograph that has an Indiana connection and was taken during the Civil War era (1861-1865) is encouraged to submit a high-quality reproduction for consideration.

Each October, the SHRAB, in conjunction with the Indiana Commission on Public Records, Society of Indiana Archivists, and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, produces a poster to raise public awareness of the importance and historical significance of Indiana's archival and historical repositories.

Photo submissions will be reviewed by the Indiana Archives Month Committee and Indiana SHRAB. All entries must include a description and photo credit (if applicable) and be of high resolution (minimum of 300 dpi). Digital submissions must be sent via e-mail to and print submissions mailed to:

Indiana Archives Month
c/o Indiana SHRAB
Indiana Commission on Public Records
402 W. Washington St., W472
Indianapolis, IN 46204

Submissions are due by Wednesday, September 14, 2011.
