With a national distribution of 75,000 – the Visitor Guide gets around – drawing visitors to Pierce County and providing information on hotels, attractions, restaurants and businesses. Compelling editorial, dynamic design, sample itineraries and multiple maps work together to make trip planning fun and simple! 

| Vision |
Photographs should reflect where ART + NATURE meet – the TRCVB’s tagline. We are looking for creativity that speaks to the region’s urban sophistication and outdoor adventure. The best entry will receive a highlighted spot in the guide featuring a Q+A with the photographer. All other entries may still be considered for publication.

Entries should represent a place or attraction in Pierce County [DuPont, Fife, Gig Harbor, Lakewood, Mount Rainier, Puyallup, Sumner, Tacoma, etc.]. Entries that do not meet guidelines will not be considered for publication.
