september winner

Westerly, Rhode Island... Washington Trust and RI Monthly recently announced that Lea Zimany’s photo of Peter Seeger performing at the Newport Folk Festival is the September 2013 winner of I Luv RI’s photo contest. Zimany’s photo, which perfectly captured September’s theme of “Favorite Festivals and Parades,” appears in September’s issue of Rhode Island Monthly Magazine.

Zimany, a Mansfield Center, CT resident noted, “Going to the Newport Folk Festival each year is like attending a family reunion. There’s a closeness among the artists, volunteers and guests that you can’t find at any other event.”

“The Newport Folk Festival is an important musical tradition in Rhode Island,” said Joseph J. MarcAurele, Washington Trust Chairman, President and CEO. “This festival highlights Rhode Island’s proud commitment to the arts.”

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: I LUV RI - Rhode Island, or by visiting www.iluvri.com.
