R&LHS Adds Railroad Documentary Award
The award recognizes outstanding videos--hobbyist/student produced with no
budget and professionally produced with a budget--released in the three years 2013
through 2015, that creatively and accurately educate viewers about North America's
railroading history. The documentaries must be easy to follow, concise, and deliver a
message that is clearly understood. In film, the scope/budget/parties involved have much more influence on the final product
than a single photographer and the image. That is the reason for two categories.
Members may send suggestions to the awards committee by September 15. Nominations are made by a
subcommittee of the R&LHS awards committee.
The Railway & Locomotive Historical Society, Inc., founded in 1921, is the oldest railroad history organization in North America, and among the first anywhere to pursue formal studies in the history of technology. The Society promotes research and encourages preservation of documentation and photography of business history, finance, labor history, biography, and technology.
