Trains Photo Contest 2022: Still Soldiering On
Trains is happy to announce its partnership with the National Railway Historical Society for the 2022 photo contest. The NRHS is a nonprofit that promotes the interest and study of the railroad industry, a mission the Trains brand shares. The NRHS, which was established in 1935, is a perfect match for a magazine that’s been around since 1940. Both groups celebrate railroad history and present-day operations. The two organizations believe that supporting and encouraging photography is beneficial to the individuals who practice and enjoy images of railroading.
The 2022 contest theme is “Still Soldiering On.” “We see this as relevant to nearly any type of railroading — steam, diesel, tourist operations, transit,” says Jeff Smith, “NRHS Bulletin” editor 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.”
As always, you can illustrate the theme however you like, but be ready to provide an explanation. Please submit no more than three low-resolution images (1200 pixels on the longest edge). Do not alter your images beyond minor color corrections, burning, dodging, and levels adjustments. Send JPGs to [email protected] no later than June 1, 2022. Please include your full name and phone number. If your image is selected, we’ll request the high-resolution format. We do not accept mailed submissions.
