NRHS, Trains Sponsoring Photo Contest

The National Railway Historical Society is partnering with Trains magazine to sponsor a railroad photograph contest. The theme of the contest is “still soldiering on.”

“We see this as relevant to nearly any type of railroading — steam, diesel, tourist operations, transit,” said Jeff Smith, editor of the NRHS Bulletin and head of the photo contest committee. “Still Soldiering On doesn’t have to be about old locomotives still in operation, it could be a line, station, or intercity passenger service that has been around for a hundred years.”

Contestants are invited to submit up to three low-resolution images (1200 pixels on longest edge).

Images should not be altered beyond minor color corrections, burning, dodging, and levels adjustments.

Entries should be sent as JPG files to TrainsContest@nrhs.com by June 1, 2022. Photographers should include with their entries their full name and phone number. No mailed submissions will be accepted.

The top prize is a $1,000 cash award. Runner up entries will be awarded $500 for second place and $250 for third place. The next five runner up entries will receive a three-year subscription to Trains or an equivalent Trains product.

All winners also receive a one-year membership in NRHS. Winning photographs will be announced in the November 2022 issue of Trains.
