“As Hoosiers, we all know Indiana is a special place,” said Pence, who noted that the deadline is May 15. “We see the unique qualities of her cities and towns, her farms and forests. Most of all, we see the distinctive virtues of her people. This effort presents a unique opportunity for Hoosiers to take part in our state’s storied history and share their favorite photos around our state.”
Photos must be taken in Indiana and should reflect one or more of these categories: natural environment and landscape; buildings and architecture; cities and towns; farms and fields; the Hoosier people; schools and libraries; transportation; business and commerce; medicine and health; religion and philanthropy; government; media and communication; arts, culture and entertainment; and sports.
“Indiana at 200: A Celebration of the Hoosier State” will contain approximately 240 pages. In addition to photos, each of the book’s 14 chapters will contain essays and vignettes from Hoosiers around the state. Books are expected to be available for purchase around statehood day, Dec. 11, of this year and may be pre-ordered at www.mtpublishing.com.
