Assignment 2018 Photo Contest
What Makes Denver, Denver?
Historic Denver launched another photo contest for the month of May, 2018. Winners were announced on June 22nd, 2018.
In honor of National Historic Preservation Month, Historic Denver launched a photo contest in May entitled “What Makes Denver, Denver.” Historic Denver has been an advocate for the places that make Denver unique for 48 years. To honor the places that are already recognized, as well as the hidden gems, the contest asked photographers to highlight a favorite historic place, landmarked or not. Amateur and professional photographers submitted photo entries to Historic Denver and a jury selected winners.
The Grand Prize winner is Armando Geneyro for his photograph entitled “Under I-70 in Swansea featuring members of the Compass Colorado Car Club.” The jury selected this photo for all that it says about the people and culture of Denver as well as our changing city. This gorgeous image speaks volumes on the people of our city, the changing landscape, and the bridges of I-70 in the historic neighborhood of Swansea. Armando won a $100 gift card to Mike’s Camera (thank you, Mike’s Camera!), a Group Walking Tour, and a free membership to Historic Denver!
The Fan Favorite winner is Patrick Surrena’s image of Union Station, entitled “Old and New Denver.” It’s a wonderful image and Surrena waited for the sky to be just right, as well as for the train to be in the image. He won a Group Walking Tour with a Happy Hour and a membership to Historic Denver.

Charlotte Couchman – “Union Station”
Jennifer Kiser – “Wings Over the Rockies”
