This year saw over 250 contributors register over 2,500 photos of cultural and historical sites all over the United States and its territories. Entrants must photograph a monument — defined as a protected historic site found on the National Register of Historic Places.
All the photos were entered in the month of October this year with the judges deciding on the winners over three rounds and several weeks.
“We were impressed by many incredible submissions, and as always, it proves to be difficult to narrow it down to just ten winners,” says Wikipedia on the competition page.
