Your photo could be cover of Iowa Travel Guide

DES MOINES (AP) -

The state tourism office is hosting a photo contest to find the cover of the next Iowa Travel Guide.

The tourism office says people have until Sunday to upload a photo on Travel Iowa's Facebook page. The top three photos will be selected and then the public will get to vote on a winner.

The winning photo will be announced Nov. 12.

A similar competition last year drew 600 photo entries. Jessica Rilling, of Cedar Rapids, took the winning image, which was featured on the 100,000 printed copies of the guide and digitally on www.traveliowa.com. She did not receive any financial compensation for the photo.

A recent study showed that Iowa tourism generated $345 million in state tax receipts in 2012.
