Austin Museum Day Instagram Photo Contest

  • Follow @TxHistComm and @austinmuseums on Instagram
  • Take a photo at participating institutions and post it to a public profile, tagging the institution, #TxHistComm, #austinmuseums, and #MuseumDay2015.

Multiple submissions are allowed. The contest closes at 9 p.m. on September 20, and submissions posted after that time will not be included. A judging panel will select 1st through 3rd places, and winners will be announced the following week. Winners of last year’s contest may submit photos, but are not eligible to win this year. Submitted photos may be reposted by the Texas Historical Commission and Austin Museum Partnership, and may also be included in future outreach materials from both organizations.
