Enter the Historic Savannah Foundation’s Summer Photo Contest
The Historic Savannah Foundation (HSF) is launching its fourth annual summer photo contest via social media until July 31. The contest asks the question: What is your favorite building or historic place in Savannah and surrounding Chatham County?
Locals and visitors are invited to share their photos of their favorite building or historic location via Instagram, describing why they chose it, and most importantly, using the hashtag #SavFave. All images shared this way will automatically be entered into the contest.
“We want people to be creative with their photographs, to look at old buildings in a new way, and to present the places that we see every day, but take for granted,” said Ryan Arvay. , Director of Preservation and Historic Properties of HSF.
The winners of the summer photo contest will be announced on August 17 and the prizes will be awarded later this month. To learn more about the photo competition, visit www.myHSF.org/uncategorized/summer-photo-contest/.
