West Michigan Tourist Association Launches 2018 West Michigan Photo Contest

The West Michigan Tourist Association (WMTA) is excited to announce the launch of their 2018 West Michigan Photo Contest. With so much beauty found in West Michigan, the West Michigan Tourist Association wants travelers to show off what they love most about this beautiful side of the state, and win some great West Michigan prizes! The contest is looking for traveler photo submissions from all around West Michigan. This region covers the entire west side of Michigan from the Indiana border to Mackinac Island and into the Upper Peninsula.

All winning photos will be featured in WMTA’s upcoming West Michigan Carefree Travel Guide, printed in January of 2018. The first place photo will also be featured on the cover of the Guide.

Additional prizes awarded to the top three photos include items from the JW Marriott in Grand Rapids, Michigan’s Adventure in Muskegon, and the Lake Express High Speed Ferry in Muskegon.
