Downtown Bangor History Month Photography Competition
is well recognized for its history, from the lumber trade to the great
fire and beyond, Downtown’s architecture is a highlight of its history.
For this reason the Downtown Bangor Partnership (DBP) hosted a historic
photo contest, in conjunction with the National Trust for Historic
Preservation’s National Preservation Month. The photo contest began in
late March and ran through April 30th.
DBP received nearly 100 photo submissions of downtown landmarks from over 50 area photography amateurs, professionals and hobbyists. The caliber of photographs submitted was extremely impressive and it was difficult for the panel of judges to narrow the submissions down to one winner.
Submissions from three photographer’s stood out and the Judges have awarded them with an Honorable Mention; Bobbie Jo Mclain, Hampden, for her unique perspective of Columbia Street Church. Edner Mae Fago, Brewer, for her very texture oriented photo of a door on Main Street, and Greg Bennett, Hampden, for his detailed shot of the Bangor Public Library.
All photographs submitted are eligible for use in future Downtown Bangor publications including brochures, website, social media and more. An online gallery will be set up so all photographs can be viewed in the coming weeks. Due to the high quality of work the committee is also considering ways to publicly display the photographs in the future.
