International Heritage Photographic Experience

The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh is looking for young photographers to represent the Pittsburgh region and the United States for the International Heritage Photographic Experience, (IHPE), an enormous project involving 200,000 in 66 countries spanning across 4 continents.

Interpreting the theme of heritage in the broadest possible sense, young photographers have captured nearly 1.3 million photographs celebrating the uniqueness of their home regions. Now is your chance to participate as Pittsburgh has been invited to represent the U.S. as the first and only American entrant.

Winners receive a trip to the Palace of Europe in Strasbourg, France to present live and print exhibitions of their work. More information and entry instructions can be found on the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh website.

This is a great opportunity for everyone who has been capturing their world as part of the ongoing Spark Creative Challenge Show & Tell and we hope it will inspire the children and youth of Pittsburgh to take a creative view of their hometown.
