Submit your Outdoor Adventure photo for the chance to win $500!

The Celebrate Michigan Photo Contest is back for its 11th year!

This summer, we're offering three consecutive contests, each about one month long, through Sept. 3. All of them will seek photos that celebrate something cool about our state. Enter your photos for a chance to win a $500 gift card!

Contest #1: OUTDOOR ADVENTURES

We're looking for photos of activities you enjoy -- hiking, biking, fishing, Petoskey stone collecting, etc. -- but also public events, street scenes or scenery that inspires you to get outside and enjoy Michigan. Use your imagination! 

Entries will be accepted from June 2 until noon on June 30. Four weekly finalists will be chosen by Detroit News judges; then the winner will be decided by a public vote on the 16 finalists. Two more contests will follow:

  • WOODS & WILDLIFE: June 30 - July 28
  •  FAVORITE PLACES: July 28 - August 25

Good luck and let's Celebrate Michigan!
