Georgia agency wants photos of historic 'hidden gems'
ATLANTA (AP) - A Georgia agency is looking for original photos that show off "hidden gems" from historic downtown areas in the state.
The state Historic Preservation Division is sponsoring its third photo contest during Preservation Month in May. The agency is asking Georgians to send in photos of historic downtown office buildings, courthouses, churches, parks and streetscapes that reflect the theme "Discovering Georgia's Hidden Gems."
Entries must be received by May 24. Photos will be judged based on creativity, choice of subject and composition. The winner will be awarded an annual membership to the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation and a copy of the book "Madison: A Classic Southern Town."
More information is available on the Historic Preservation Division's website: www.georgiashpo.org.
