Announcing the Wilkinsburg Religious Structures Photo Contest!

At Preservation Pittsburgh, we love the built environment and we want to call attention to the beautiful ecclesiastical architecture in Wilkinsburg.  In order to highlight this architecture, we're launching a photo competition.

It’s easy!  Look up at the buttresses, bell towers, and more on churches and other religious spaces in Wilkinsburg.  Take four(4) pictures, illustrating the exterior of your favorite and submit to:

The contest runs October 1st-24th.  Winners will be awarded a prize of $100 and a special prize for those 12 & under.  Join us on November 5th, at 10:00am, for breakfast at St. Stephens Church, 600 Pitt Street in Wilkinsburg when the winners will be announced!

Please note that this contest is limited to Wilkinsburg congregations and people who live or work in Wilkinsburg.  We do anticipate having similar competitions in other communities in the future, so please stay tuned!  If you're interested in having your community featured next, please contact for additional information.
