ALBANY – The Albany Convention & Visitors Bureau (ACVB) announces Rick Osborne as the winner of the inaugural Zoom In On Albany photo contest.
During the summer of 2013, ACVB held an online photo contest via their Facebook page. Amateur and professional photographers, including locals and visitors, were encouraged to submit their photography for a chance to win an iPad and see the winning printed in the Albany Herald.
“We know what we love about Albany,” Rashelle Beasley, ACVB Manager, said. “To host a photo contest that allows other to show off what they love about Albany was something we were excited to do.”
Rick Osborne, the winning photographer, is an Albany native that now lives in Stone Mountain, GA. The winning photograph was taken while he was in town visiting family.
“My mother-in-law was actually the one who told me about the contest,” Osborne said when he picked up his iPad. “But she couldn’t remember where to submit the photos. So I had to track that down through one of her neighbors.”
The Albany Convention & Visitors Bureau works with first class accommodations, award winning attractions and the finest restaurants in Southwest Georgia to promote Albany as a destination travel spot. Visitors can experience the great outdoors, walk through history, and spoil themselves with true southern hospitality in Southwest Georgia. For more information, visit www.visitalbanyga.com.
