Annual South County, RI Photo Contest

It doesn't matter that South County, RI is really Washington County, RI. A place this great needs multiple names. Every year our Tourism Council has a photography contest with some very nice prizes. To encourage our guests to participate we've decided to sweeten the pot: if you snap a winning photo while a guest at Blueberry Cove Inn we will add a free, one night's stay to your prize. (In the form of a gift certificate equal in value to the room you booked with some restrictions to be defined later.)

So with that lure out there, here is the official scoop lifted from the South County Tourism newsletter:

You are invited to submit photos reflecting the naturally serene beauty that can only be found in South County, which as you know, is significantly blessed by nature. Your challenge is to capture images representing 449 square miles of scenery filled with wildlife preserves, protected parks and forests that spill down to 100 miles of sandy beaches, sprinkled with 18 public golf courses and populated by those who love to live and visit the area.

With a chance to win over $1,000 in prize money, all entrants to our 9th Annual South County Tourism Council Photo Contest are encouraged to submit enticing images reflecting the beauty of our people and places within the environs of Charlestown, Coventry, East Greenwich, Exeter, Hopkinton, Narragansett, North Kingstown, Richmond, South Kingstown, Westerly and West Greenwich.

Entries are being accepted through August 12. For entry form and contest rules visit or email us at
