We had a blast marveling over the phenomenal photos our fans submitted during last year’s Pure Michigan Moments photo contest. Since we had such a wonderful turn out, we’re excited to once again invite fans of Pure Michigan to share their favorite “Michigan Moment” as part of the 2nd Annual Pure Michigan Moments photo contest!

The winning photo and the photographer’s name will be published in the 2014 spring/summer Pure Michigan Travel Guide. The photo submission period of the contest kicks off today (November 1, 2013) and will run through November 10th.

After entries are submitted, fans will be able to vote for their favorite photo on the Pure Michigan Facebook page from November 11th- November 17th.

Fans can submit photos directly to the Pure Michigan Facebook contest tab, or through Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #puremichigancontest. All submissions will be automatically fed into the customized Facebook tab on Pure Michigan’s page, where fans will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite photos.

The winner will be chosen from the top 10 photos, as voted on by fans, based on which photo best represents the quality and character of Pure Michigan. You must be a fan of Pure Michigan on Facebook to view the photos and vote.

The winning photo will be seen by hundreds of thousands of people in the 2014 spring/summer Pure Michigan Travel Guide.  One million copies of the guide will be printed, with 650,000 copies being distributed with the March/April issue of Midwest Living magazine.
