Landmark Commission Announces Photo Contest Winners

Sixth Annual Contest Celebrates Preservation Month

Dateline: August 7, 2018 - The Shaker Heights Landmark Commission announces winners of the sixth annual Preservation Month photo contest after reviewing 59 entries submitted by 25 photographers. The contest, created in 2013, honors National Preservation Month, which is celebrated each May by preservation organizations across the country. In a nod to the widespread use of cell phone cameras and social media, this year’s contest was based in Instagram.

The contest encouraged residents and visitors to submit images showcasing what makes Shaker “Shaker.” Submissions ranged from specific architectural details and landmark buildings to neighborhood scenes, events, streets and parks.

This year, the Commission selected a grand prize winner and four runners-up, for a total of five winners. In addition, a People’s Choice award was given to the submission receiving the highest number of “likes” at the Instagram hashtag #PreserveSH18, where all the photos can be viewed.

“The winners of this year’s contest have captured a visually arresting quality of Shaker-- its architecture, neighborhoods, gardens--which reveals the essence of what connects our history to our present. The Landmark Commission takes great pleasure in sharing these photographs with our community,” says Councilwoman Nancy Moore, Chair of the Landmark Commission.
