UPEC’s Annual Video Contest


Win up to $100 • New this year: Snap Videos!

Deadline: March 14, 2020

Like our annual Photo Contest, the aim of the UPEC Video Contest is to highlight the beauty of the U.P. landscape and its inhabitants. Anyone can participate. All you need is a love of the U.P. and a desire to show other people why!


There are two categories, with Youth and Adult winners to be named in both.


  • Regular Videos. Shoot a video 3 minutes or less highlighting the U.P. environment.

  • Snap Videos. New this year, enter our 10 second or less category for a quick impact.


Upload to YouTube and send a link with your name to upec@upenvironment.org by March 14, 2020. Include your age if you are under 18. Top picks in youth and adult categories will be shows at Celebrate the UP! March 27–28, 2020, in the Houghton–Hancock area.

Last year’s winner Alex Maier showed us “What Really Matters” with emotional and dramatic photography, and runner-up Christopher Lamers introduced us to “Cool Places in Marquette, MI” with an approachable style that encourages anyone to get out and discover nature.
