WP:NRHP has organized a September-long, nationwide contest at Wikipedia:WikiProject National Register of Historic Places/NRHP Fall 2013 Photo Contest for fun and barnstars with sub-contests including "longest road trip", "most railroad related sites", and a "Scavenger hunt". Note that this is not part of the official WLM-US "Best photo" contest, and no monetary prizes will be awarded. Smallbones(smalltalk) 15:13, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
