CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The city of Corpus Christi is looking for "Undiscovered Treasures" with this year's amateur photographer's photo contest, according to a release from the city.

The city's Landmark Commission is wanting you to submit your photos of unrecognized buildings of significance in Corpus Christi. The buildings need to be essential to the city's narrative but that might be underrepresented or just undiscovered.

The contest began on April 1 and will run until May 1.

Just post your photos to the city's social medias with the hashtag #PreserveCC2023.

The top 5 Winners will be notified and announced on Facebook and Instagram.
