GENEVA – The City of Geneva Historic Preservation Commission is sponsoring a citywide photography contest honoring May as National Preservation Month.
Interested individuals are invited to submit a digital photographic entry, consisting of two images, which capture the materials of the City's historic architecture.
Participants must submit an entry form along with two original photos – one a general view and one with an associated detail – of a treasured historic building, structure, object or place within the municipal boundaries of Geneva.
Entry forms are available online or at Geneva City Hall. Entries will be accepted until 4 p.m. Monday, May 20. Entries may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in person to the Office of the Historic Preservation Planner at Geneva City Hall, 22 S.
