SYRACUSE, N.Y. – 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.

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 Monday, May 31.

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.”

Instructions for participating in Snap That Sign 2021 are as follows:

  1. Browse this list of Pomeroy markers that need to be photographed.
  2. Review the photography guidelines and photo-taking tips to ensure your photos will be eligible.
  3. Email your photos to info@wgpfoundation.orgby Monday, May 31, and share on social media using the hashtag #SnapThatSign
