Golden Spike Tower, North Platte, Nebraska Train Attraction, Hosts Train Photo Contest

Train-loving photographers could have their work on display at one of the most popular train-oriented attractions in the world.

The Golden Spike Tower & Visitor Center, overlooking Union Pacific’s Bailey Yard in North Platte, Nebraska, has announced its first-ever photography contest—and the rules are pretty simple.

“The only requirement is that the photo include a train—any kind of train, any part of a train,” said JoAnne Hoatson, executive director of the Golden Spike Tower & Visitor Center. “The photo can also include people, animals, scenery and so forth—there just needs to be a train somewhere in the photograph.”

The winning photo, selected by a panel of judges, will be enlarged to an 18″ x 36″ print, framed and placed on display in the main entry area of the Golden Spike Tower for one year. The photographer’s name and hometown will be prominently noted as well. The winning photograph will be announced in September.

Entries will be accepted through July 31, 2013. Online entry and contest details are available at www.goldenspiketower.com/photocontest. Cost is $25 per entry. Photos can be black & white or color.
