What an injustice that the young woman who WON this contest will not have her beautiful picture on the cover !!
I know a lot of people who agree and will not be reading the Salem Visitor's Guide this year !!!

We are very sympathetic to anyone's disappointment that Hillary Dearborn's winning image is not the featured image on the cover of the 2011 Salem Guide. Unfortunately, when we did final layouts, the image of the Salem Willows fence did not work graphically as the primary image.

The winning image is included on the cover as one of the insets, and Ms. Dearborn has been given credit for winning the contest in the guide credits. In addition, Ms. Dearborn won a cash prize.

I am sorry you will not be reading the 2011 Salem Guide, because we feel it is an excellent resource for exploring the City.
