3rd Annual Preservation Photo Contest to Celebrate National Historic Preservation Month
May is National Historic Preservation Month! The City of Minneapolis Community Planning and Economic Development (CPED) department is excited to invite you to participate in a photo contest to celebrate the historic resources that make our city special. Minneapolis has 177 locally designated landmarks and 18 historic districts. We want to see how you capture the character of these historic places!
CPED is encouraging individuals to share their best photos of Minneapolis landmarks or scenes from historic districts to celebrate the contributions these old buildings and places make to our city. To enter the contest, snap a photo and post it on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook with the hashtag #MPLSpreservation by May 31, 2018.
The winners will be announced in early June and three winning photos will be featured in the Heritage Preservation Commission’s annual report, the City’s Heritage Preservation webpage, and other City of Minneapolis department of Community Planning and Economic Development webpages.
Check this page for the winning photos on June 8th. Those who capture the winning photos will be contacted by CPED staff through the applicable social media format.
NOTE: Photos should not contain identifiable people. Submissions may be used by the City of Minneapolis in future print and digital publications, with proper credit to the photographer.
