»Call for Images: "Old Main Centennial Tour Poster/Photography" Contest

The great State of New Mexico is celebrating its 100th birthday in 2012. What better way to celebrate than to invite the public to be a part of the festivities and have a photography contest?

We know that many Santa Fe Workshops alumni have had the chance to visit the "Old Main" prison as a photographic location, so here's the opportunity to have your images seen. Deadline is January 20, 2012.

NMCD’s goal is to collect the pictures you’ve taken representing the “Corrections” system and display them in the new Prison museum. The New Mexico State Penitentiary “Old Main” prison will be opening for tours beginning on February 2, 2012 and they’d love to share your work!
