BISMARCK -- A photo titled " Medora@Night " was named the winner of the Governor's Photo Contest by North Dakota first lady Betsy Dalrymple on Wednesday afternoon.

The photo, which shows Medora from atop a butte on the west side of the town with its street lights shining just after sundown, was taken by Brian Ward of Hunter.

Ward's photo won the Best in Show and Attraction categories. He will receive a total of $500 for winning the categories. Ward's photo was chosen from among 732 entries.

"There's no one better at capturing our state's attractions and beautiful scenery than North Dakota's amateur photographers, who experience first-hand the legendary offerings awaiting our visitors," Dalrymple said in a release.

Photos were judged on originality, subject matter, visual appeal and ability to portray North Dakota as a legendary travel destination in the categories of adventure, attractions, events, people, scenery and wildlife.
