2024 Tyler Gerth Memorial Photography Contest Open Through Dec. 13

Back to News & Updates

Olmsted Parks Conservancy is now accepting entries of photography featuring Olmsted Parks and Parkways for the Tyler Gerth Memorial Photography Contest in partnership with the Building Equal Bridges Foundation. 

The Building Equal Bridges Foundation and Olmsted Parks Conservancy share the commitment to advocate for a more equitable world. They believe that parks are democratic spaces that foster unity, collaboration and inclusivity.

“Tyler Gerth left this world too soon, but his legacy lives on through the work his family champions in his memory. It is an honor to partner with them to highlight photography as an artistic medium through which we can share our perspectives with the greater community,” said Layla George, President and CEO of Olmsted Parks Conservancy. “Frederick Law Olmsted designed our park system as an equitable community resource and much like bridges, our parkways connect one neighborhood to another. We are honored to pay tribute to Tyler Gerth and partner with Building Equal Bridges to promote the love of parks and photography in Louisville.”
