The entries are in and it's time to vote in the 6th Annual Laramie Area Visitor Center Photo Contest, sponsored by the Albany County Tourism Board!! The top ten in each of the four categories have been chosen and are currently displayed in participating Laramie banks for voting until May 4th. Everyone is encouraged to vote for their favorite photo in the Scenic Category at First Interstate Bank (221 E. Ivinson), the Outdoor Activities Category at UniWyo Credit Union (1610 E. Reynolds St.), the Buildings/Museums/Landmarks Category at First National Bank (2020 E. Grand Ave.), and the Open Category at ANB Bank (3908 E. Grand Ave.).

You may also vote in the contest on our Facebook page, Visit Laramie. "Like" your favorite photo in each of our four categories to cast your Facebook vote! Your vote will not count if you do not "Like" the  Visit Laramie page. These votes will then be added to the in-person ballots to select the three winning entries in each category!

The winning photos will be announced and displayed at the Business After Hours event at the Hilton Garden Inn of Laramie, sponsored jointly by the Albany County Tourism Board, May 10th, 2012 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. First through third place in each category guarantees a $125, $100, and $75 prize, respectively. An exciting addition to the annual contest this year is the opportunity to win "Overall Best Photo," a $200 prize! All prize-winning photos have the possibility of being in many of the Albany County Tourism Board's publications including the Visitor Guide and advertisements distributed nationally AND internationally!

So, make sure to stop by First Interstate Bank, UniWyo Federal Credit Union, First National Bank, ANB Bank or head to Visit Laramie on Facebook to cast your vote(s) in the 6th Annual Laramie Area Visitor Center Photo Contest!! May 4th will be here before you know it!
