Utah Rural Health Photo Contest

The Office of Primary Care and Rural Health is proud to announce the winners of the Utah Rural Health Photo Contest.

In celebration of the November 2017 Utah Rural Health Week, OPCRH held the "Utah Rural Health Week Photo Contest." The Contest challenged anyone with a passion for photography to capture an image of Rural Utah and to share it with OPCRH. In response, OPCRH received more than 30 submissions highlighting a wide range of Rural Utah landscapes and activities. The photos were based on their creativity, originality, photo quality and how well they communicate the concept of "RURAL."

Winners were selected by a panel of judges which included Steve Ipsen, Director of the Bureau of Primary Care; Matt McCullough, Office of Primary Care and Rural Health - Manager and Owen QuiƱonez, OPCRH Assistant Manager. OPCRH extends its thanks to these winners and judges for their generosity and their participation.

Below you will find the winning photos, as well as several other notable entries.
