LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Louisville non-profit Preservation Louisville revealed the winners of its first ever “Preservation Photo Competition.”
Each year the group releases a list of its top 10 preservation successes and challenged photographers in the community to capture buildings which ranged from shotgun houses to churches.
Organizers say they were pleased to see how creatively the artists depicted the sites.
“To get a chance to see these architectural gems, they definitely gave us a gift by giving us beautiful images to promote these architectural gems,” Marrianne Zickuhr said.
The grand prize winner of the competition was photojournalist Jacob Zimmer.
There were several other runners-up and including a youth winner.
The photos are currently on display at the new Bristol Café in the Mellwood Arts Center.
