Price Reduced for 2013 Official Utah Scenic Calendar
Salt Lake City – The price for the 2013 edition of the Utah Life Elevated® Scenic Calendar has now been reduced to $7 each for the remaining inventory. Now in its 41st year, the annual award-winning publication, produced by the Utah Office of Tourism, highlights many of Utah’s iconic destinations, outdoor activities, and events through its captivating photography and graphic design. The calendar also features a greeting by Governor Gary R. Herbert.
A colorful photo of Thor’s Hammer at Bryce Canyon National Park, taken by photographer Ed Riche, is featured on this year’s cover. Many other Utah destinations are featured in the nearly 80 images throughout the calendar.
“The award-winning calendar is a wonderful recruitment tool for the state and is a wonderful reminder of the outstanding landscapes and outdoor recreation Utah has to offer travelers in all four seasons,” said Vicki Varela, managing director of the Utah Office of Tourism, an agency of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.
Utah graphic artist Scott Hardy, who has worked on the state’s scenic calendars for the past 27 years, once again designed this year’s calendar. Twenty-five thousand copies were printed by Rastar in West Valley City.
The Utah Scenic Calendar is recognized annually for design and photography by the National and World Calendar Awards competition hosted by the Calendar Marketing Association. The 2012 and 2011 editions were honored with 13 awards in the National and World Calendar Awards competition, including a Gold Award for Best Graphic Design.
