Photo contest: How do you celebrate Kentucky’s waterways?

KWA is thrilled to announce the winner of our Mint Julep Month photo contest: Amy Le Ann Richardson (@kymtnwriter). In partnership with Garden & Gun magazine and Go To Louisville we hosted a photo contest to encourage Kentuckians to show how they celebrate Kentucky’s waterways, whether that be through bourbon, boating, or another outlet. Although this year’s Derby will be a bit different, spring is the perfect time to celebrate our favorite aspects of Kentucky, including bourbon. Holding true to the idea that clean water makes better bourbon, we hope you’ll raise a glass to all of Kentucky’s precious resources, including our 90,000 miles of waterways.

Thank you to all of our participants for sharing such fun, creative, and thoughtful photos!

Winning photo: submitted by Amy Le Ann Richardson (@kymtnwriter) with the caption “I was joined by a pollinator friend for a little bourbon on the rocks this evening to close out my 35th birthday. Perfect way to toast the day 🥃”
