|Celebrate the places that matter to YOU and be entered to win a digital camera!
The National Trust for Historic Preservation and Fireman’s Fund Insurance are proud to announce the start of the Summer 2009 Places that Matter Photo Contest. Submit photos of your favorite places — whether they’re national monuments or right in your own backyard — and be eligible to win one of three digital cameras.
Entering our contest is easy!
1. Download our This Place Matters sign — or make one of your own!
2. Take your photo in front of a place that matters to you.
3. Add it to our pool of places that matter across the country!
You may enter as many digital photos as you wish between now and Tuesday, September 15, 2009. Ten photos will be selected as finalists, after which a public online vote will determine the final winners.
The photo with the most votes will win the grand prize of a Panasonic Lumix ZS3 digital camera! Each of two runners-up will receive a Panasonic Lumix ZS1 digital camera, and all three winners will also receive a Sandisk Extreme III 8GB SD memory card.
To enter one (or more!) images, visit our This Place Matters website and use our free photo upload tool.
Too often, places that matter to us can be lost in a heartbeat — sometimes even before we realize they will be missed. The best way to save a place that matters is to call attention to it and value it before it is endangered.
Thank you for all you do to showcase the places that matter — inspiring others to protect, enhance and enjoy the places that matter to us all. And good luck!

Photo submissions must be uploaded by 11:59 pm Central Standard Time on Tuesday, September 15, 2009. Please read the full rules before entering.
