2012 Spring Photo Contest is Announced by the Wayne County Tourism Bureau & Jade Matters Photography

Richmond, Indiana – Wayne County residents and visitors are invited to submit original digital color images taken in Wayne County, Indiana during the 2012 spring months to illustrate what there is to see and do in Wayne County.  The Tourism Bureau received over 500 photos in last summer’s photo contest.

The purpose of the Spring Photo Contest is to develop awareness of and interest in Wayne County’s varied attractions, activities, events, landscapes, city scapes and architecture. The Tourism Bureau also hopes to increase their interactions with residents and visitors, while supplementing their digital photo library. Plans are to use the best photos in online and print publications that promote Wayne County to visitors.
