American Archives Month Photo Contest

30 09 2014

In honor of American Archives Month, the University Archives & Historical Collections is holding a photo contest. Learn about MSU history and see how campus has changed by creating Then-and-Now photos and possibly win a prize!

HOW TO ENTER:

*  Create a Then-and-Now photo using historic images from the MSU Archives (found on our On the Banks of the Red Cedar website: onthebanks.msu.edu). This can be done one of two ways —

  1. Overlay a historic MSU photo from the MSU Archives over a current setting to show the past and present in the same photo.
  2. Create a side-by-side image using a historic MSU photo from the MSU Archives next to the current setting.

*  Submit photos through the MSU Archives’ email at archives@msu.edu. Please include your name, address, and descriptive title for your photo(s).

*  Entries will be accepted through October 31, 2014.

What if the picture we would like to use states “Educational use only, no other permissions given”? Do we need to ask permission before we use it?
