Gov. Jim Justice, in partnership with the West Virginia Tourism Office, today announced a new photo contest, inviting all West Virginians to share their favorite photos for a chance to be featured in the state’s new advertising campaign. The top photos will receive $500.
“I’ve said for years that West Virginia is the best kept secret on the East Coast, but the time has come for us to showcase all of the incredible things there are to see and do in our great state,” Gov. Justice said.
“We’ve been working on a new tourism campaign, and I must say, I’ve been shocked at the limited gallery of photos we have to work with, which is why I’m counting on you, my fellow West Virginians, to help us find these images. We’re looking for everything from scenics that highlight outdoor recreation to photos that capture the size of our monster bucks, beautiful smallmouth bass in West Virginia rivers, giant trout in one of our streams, a big spring gobbler in full strut, or a flock of fall turkeys.”
