How the Contest will be Judged

The winning photos will be selected by the publisher based on the quality and content of the photos. We are looking for high quality photos that show the scenic beauty of the trails and the people who use the trails during all four seasons of the year. We would like to show a variety of trail users, modes of transportation, landmarks, wildlife and other points of interest along the trails. The photos you see in Michigan Trails Magazine and here on our website should give you some clues. Get creative. All decisions are final and at the sole discretion of the publisher.

Photos selected for publication and the grand prize photo will be announced and appear in the next edition of Michigan Trails Magazine when it is published in April 2018. The winning photographers will receive a free copy of the magazine (mailed to your home), a photo credit (your name published with the photo) and a check from the publisher. Good luck!
