Pomeroy foundation’s ‘Snap that Sign’ photo contest deadline soon

SYRACUSE — The William G. Pomeroy Foundation’s Snap That Sign photo-taking campaign is back for a second year and welcomes public participation across New York state for this outdoor, family-friendly activity, according to a news release.

The Snap That Sign is a statewide photo crowdsourcing campaign that asks participants to help put their community “on the map” by taking pictures of historic markers funded by the Pomeroy Foundation. The Pomeroy Foundation’s website has a list of specific historic markers that need to be photographed for Snap That Sign 2021. The photo submission deadline is May 31.

The photos selected for publication will be added to individual marker listings on the Pomeroy Foundation’s interactive marker map, and will provide a greater visual context about each marker and its location. All participants will receive a Pomeroy Foundation historic marker pin as a “thank you.”

“The response last year to the first Snap That Sign campaign was overwhelming and so appreciated,” said Deryn Pomeroy, Director of Strategic Initiatives at the Pomeroy Foundation. “We received hundreds of photos that help bring these historic markers to life for those who visit our marker map from all over the world. We’re excited to see what this year’s Snap That Sign brings.”

The instructions for participating in Snap That Sign 2021 are as follows:
