May is National Historic Preservation Month! The City of Minneapolis department of Community Planning and Economic Development Department (CPED) is excited to invite you to participate in a photo contest to celebrate the historic resources that make our city a special place to live. Minneapolis has 170 locally designated landmarks and 15 historic districts. We want to see how you can capture the character of these places!
CPED is encouraging individuals to share their best photos of Minneapolis landmarks or scenes from historic districts to celebrate the benefit of these places 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, 2017.
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.
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.
