Have Great Michigan Photos? You Could Win a Mackinac Island Trip
Summer is in full swing, and chances are, you’re getting a ton of great photos during your travels. Anyone who has a smart phone can capture beautiful photos these days. In fact, there’s even something known as being an “iPhone photographer,” for people who pride themselves on getting beautiful photo’s from their iPhones. Now, if you have great Michigan photos, you could win a trip to Mackinac Island. Here’s how.
The West Michigan Tourist Association has kicked off its 2023 photo contest. The association is looking for photo submissions from travelers from all over Michigan.
“The idea is to show the best of West Michigan. We have so many picture-perfect locations, so what better way than having a photo contest?” Paige Bodine, marketing manager with the West Michigan Tourist Association, told Woodtv.com. Bodine added, “West Michigan Tourist Association is all about promoting those hidden gems around West Michigan. A really cool thing about our photo contest is we choose winners from our photo contest to be in our travel guide.”
There are lots of different categories in the contest for Michigan photos. Those include downtown, nature and travelers enjoying West Michigan. Get your friends to help, because there’s also an option for a public vote, which will highlight 50 chosen photos that the public will vote on. So, what are the prizes? The photographer of the picture that wins the public vote will win a Mackinac Island prize package for four. That will feature a two-night stay at the Chippewa Hotel Waterfront, round-trip ferry tickets, tickets to Fort Mackinac and bike rentals.
Ready? The deadline to enter the Michigan photos contest is July 28. Public vote begins Aug. 1. All of the winners will be announced Aug. 18. For more information on the photo contest and to officially enter, head to the West Michigan Tourist Association website. Best of luck to you.
