Assignment 2017 Photo Contest
In honor of National Historic Preservation Month, Historic Denver launched a photo contest for the month of May.
The content seeks to highlight what is historic- either officially or in the eye of the beholder- and demonstrate that historic preservation happens every day.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Denver’s Landmark Preservation program, and Historic Denver’s 47th year as an advocate for the places that make Denver unique. To honor the places that are already recognized, as well as the hidden gems, the contest asks photographers to highlight a favorite historic place, landmarked or not. Amateur and professional photographers can submit their photo entries to Historic Denver via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A jury consisting of Historic Denver board members will select the Grand Prize Winner, and two runners-up to receive gift cards to local establishments, publication in the organization’s print newsletter, and promotion on social media.
Grand Prize Winner was Tina Pino with her photo of the 19th Street Bridge. Tina won a $100 gift card from Mike’s Camera (thank you Mike’s Camera!).
Our Facebook Fan Favorite Winner was Robert Riester with his image of Larimer Square- Robert won several gift cards to local Denver establishments. Check out our Facebook page for all of the updates, and a list of honorable mentions!
