City looking for photos of Park Lake, Highland neighborhood for Historic Orlando calendar

The city of Orlando has produced a Historic Preservation Board Calendar for over 30 years as a tribute to the city’s rich history.

To qualify, photos should be of structures that are at least 50 years old and located in the Historic Park Lake/Highland neighborhood, which is bordered by Virginia Drive to the north, Mills Avenue to the east, Colonial Drive to the south and Highland Avenue to the west.

According to city officials, the subject of the photo may be individual details of a building, or the entire structure itself, and can be interior or exterior in nature.

Each photographer whose picture is selected for the calendar will receive a $100 honorarium. Contest submissions must be submitted or postmarked by 5 p.m. on July 11.
