We’re looking for a photo (or illustration) of a monument in the Midwest.

Time to dispatch The New Territory reader community!

We will give the winner $25, placement in the next print issue of The New Territory, and a copy of Issue 07.

Runners-up may be considered for other use on our website and social media.


What kind of monuments? Whatever you have! The iconic and obscure, the silly and the serious. OKC National Memorial, Gateway Arch, Monument Rocks, a sculpture outside your local courthouse, your grandmother’s home altar, carhenge, boathenge, you name it. Also:

  • image resolution must be 300 ppi
  • preference given for monuments in Nebaska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and places nearby
  • provide a caption (simply the name of the monument and location is perfectly fine)
  • email image file, with monument’s location in the subject line, to monuments@newterritorymag.com by Saturday, October 13, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. (CST, of course!)

Winners will be notified by Friday, October 19.
