Port Arthur Penitentiary photo contest


With major conservation works due to start on the Port Arthur Penitentiary during February, the emblematic ruin at the Historic Site isn't going to be its picturesque self for a few months.

So the Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority (PAHSMA) is inviting visitors, and others, to offer up their best photo of the Penitentiary to be shared with visitors who come while the works are in progress.

The twelve best photos, as judged by the Historic Site's Facebook fans and staff, will be rewarded with a Ticket of Leave pass offering free return entry to the Historic Site for two years.
