The West Michigan Tourist Association announced the launch of its 2021 West Michigan Photo Contest.
Travelers are encouraged to share what they love the most about West Michigan and will have the opportunity to win prizes.
Courtney Sheffer, WMTA’s marketing director, said the photos do not need to be taken this month to be eligible.
“If you have West Michigan photos from your past visits to the area, we encourage you to enter those as well,” she said. “West Michigan is photogenic all seasons of the year, so don’t feel that you’re only limited to submitting summer photos.”
All photo entries must be received by July 28. Judges will award prizes in the categories of nature, people and beach/lake/lighthouse with an additional prize awarded via public voting by WMTA’s Facebook audience.
Photo submissions should include first and last name of the photographer, city where the photograph was taken and a short description of the photo.
The full list of rules and regulations can be found on the West Michigan Tourist Association’s website.
“Being able to share all of these great photos from around West Michigan is truly a highlight of each year,” Sheffer said. “We love seeing the community involvement with this contest, and the unique perspectives that each individual shares with their photos.”
