The deadline for the Ravalli County Museum's Ernst Peterson "Photograph Montana" contest is today, February 7.

The contest has divisions for adults and for kids 12 and under. The photos can be color or black-and-white. Ernst Peterson was a black-and-white photographer, with many of his photos from the 40s and 50s hand-tinted by himself and associates.

Entry cost is $3 and the money raised will help preserve and restore the Peterson photo collection at the Hamilton museum. For more information call 363-3338.
