Washington Trust Selects I Luv RI Photo Contest Winner

Surfing Photo Selected for May Issue of RI Monthly


Westerly, Rhode Island... Washington Trust and Rhode Island Monthly announced today that “Water Ballet”, a photo taken by, Ingrid Matthews of Wyoming, R.I., is the recent winner of the I Luv RI 2012 photo contest and will appear in the May 2012 issue of Rhode Island Monthly Magazine.

“Visitors travel from far and wide to enjoy what we are blessed to have right here in our own backyard. Rhode Island is endowed with some of the most magnificent coastline on the East Coast,” said Matthews. Adding, “For me, there is no better way to spend the day than enjoying the sights and sounds of one of Rhode Island's many beautiful beaches. One can take a leisurely walk, soak up some sun, take a swim, catch a sunset or watch the surfers ride the waves and captivate us with their graceful water dance. It doesn't get much better.”

“Ingrid’s photo truly captures the beauty and spirit of Rhode Island,” stated Joseph J. MarcAurele, Washington Trust Chairman, President and CEO. “Her photo complements the wonderful photos we’ve selected to date and represents one of the reasons we’re proud to call Rhode Island ‘home’.”
