Winners Announced for the 11th annual Rural Kansas Photo Contest

We are proud to announce the winners of the 11th annual Rural Kansas Photo Contest. This contest was started to allow amateur and professional photographers to help showcase the beauty found in Kansas communities.

The contest has grown over the past decade from 55 photos submitted in the first year to 517 this year. Rural Health Education and Services uses the photos in marketing and printed material to promote Kansas as a great place for health care providers to live, work and play. In addition, University of Kansas Medical Center departments use prints of the photos to display in offices and conference rooms.

During the National Rural Health Day celebrations held on Thursday, November 17th, more than one hundred guests attending the receptions in Wichita and Kansas City were able to view the photos live and vote for their favorites. In addition, more than 225 people from across Kansas submitted their vote online.
