The Door County Visitor Bureau has been honored with the 2016 Wisconsin Trailblazer Award by the Wisconsin Association of Convention and Visitor Bureaus. The statewide group hands out “trailblazer” awards to destination marketing organizations for outstanding marketing and partnership projects that help advance Wisconsin’s tourism industry. The awards this year were given out in four categories with the local tourism agency being honored in the outstanding partnerships category. A partnership between the visitor bureau, Pediment Publishing and many great photographers were behind the creation of the “Seasons Behind the Door” photo book initiative. Users submitted more than 24,000 photos showcasing the scenic beauty of the seasons of Door County for the contest. More than 120,000 votes were cast resulting in 232 winning photos that are featured in the book. The Door County Visitor Bureau has sold more than 500 books since it was released in April.
