Washington Trust Selects I Luv RI August Photo Contest Winner

Salty Brine Beach Photo Appears in August Issue of RI Monthly

August Winner

Westerly, Rhode Island... Washington Trust and Rhode Island Monthly announced today that “Where’s Waldo on Salty Brine,” a photo taken by Barbara McCormick of Wakefield, R.I., is the recent winner of the I Luv RI 2012 photography contest. McCormick’s beach photo appears in the August 2012 issue of Rhode Island Monthly Magazine.

“I chose this image because the people on the beach were so full of color and so busy with activity. It was exciting to have such a great view of the beach crowds aboard the Block Island Ferry. It spoke ‘quintessential Rhode Island’ to me...mid-summer on the beach, there is nothing better than that,” said McCormick.

“Rhode Island has some of the best beaches on the East Coast,” stated Joseph J. MarcAurele, Washington Trust Chairman, President and CEO. “Barbara’s photo truly captures the spirit of a fun summer day at a Rhode Island beach. It is picture-postcard perfect and makes you wish you were there.”

The “I Luv RI” photo contest is sponsored by Washington Trust in conjunction with Rhode Island Monthly. Photographers may enter by sending their favorite Rhode Island photo to: www.rimonthly.com/ILUVRI, or by visiting www.iluvri.com.

Each month in 2012, a winning photo will be selected and published in Rhode Island Monthly magazine. Monthly photo winners also receive an “I Luv RI” gift basket full of Rhode Island items, and one of twelve special Rhode Island experiences, including stays at Rhode Island’s best resorts, such as Watch Hill’s Ocean House; The Chanler at Cliffwalk in Newport; the Harborside Inn or RI Hotel Manisses, on Block Island; or receive special VIP experiences at the Pawtucket Red Sox, the Providence Bruins, Trinity Repertory Company, Rhode Island Philharmonic, Roger Williams Park Zoo, Warwick Mall and Yawgoo Valley Ski Resort; or a ‘Cake A Month’ from Rhode Island’s own Gregg’s Restaurants.
