Gallery captures a year in Fort Wayne


FORT WAYNE — Visit Fort Wayne announced Jan. 31 the release of “Fort Wayne 2018: Year in Pictures” – a collaborative photo essay project.

Nine community publications, including IN|Fort Wayne, selected their top photos and stories from 2018, to help build a gallery overview of the top Fort Wayne stories in 2018.

IN|Fort Wayne, a publication of KPC Media Group, serves readers in Allen County with three monthly newspapers: Aboite News, Dupont Valley News and Northeast News.

“Fort Wayne 2018: Year in Pictures” was the brainchild of William Bryant Rozier, managing editor of Fort Wayne Ink Spot, according to Visit Fort Wayne’s announcement. Rozier’s vision was “to recap and summarize the stories of the city using the print publications and digital storytellers that have already documented Fort Wayne in 2018.”

The photos were collected and curated by the marketing team at Visit Fort Wayne.

“We were delighted to help bring Rozier’s vision to life,” Kristen Guthrie, vice president of marketing and communications at Visit Fort Wayne, said in a prepared statement. “And we are so grateful for the nine publications and media outlets who submitted photos to the project. Their combined storytelling presents a wonderful overview of our community in 2018.”
