ENTER YOUR BEST SHOTS IN UPEC’S 2022 PHOTO CONTEST
Two new categories: “UP Reimagined” and “Mining: Past & Future”

Deadline for entries: January 8, 2022

 

 

Every year, UPEC invites people to help us recognize and share the beauty of our landscape and its inhabitants
by entering our Photo Contest. Send us your best shots representing the beautiful UP, including photos you may
have on file from any season of the year. Winners will be featured in a slide show gallery on UPEC’s website during 2022. There are six categories:

 

  1. Nature panoramas, wildlife, and landscapes.

  2. Humans engaged with the natural world.

  3. Close-ups of hidden or overlooked beauty.

  4. Wonderful fluid water.

  5. NEW: “UP Reimagined.” Show off your Photoshop skills by submitting a digitally edited photo that imagines what it might look like if ... An oil spill hits the Straits ... A rocket launches over Marquette ... A pack of wolves roams the Porkies. You get the idea!

  6. NEW: “Mining: Past & Future.” Share your photos of historic or current mining sites in the UP, or places where a mine is being proposed.


Each category has latitude open to the photographer’s interpretation. You can be from anywhere, but your photos must be of the Upper Peninsula. You may submit one photo in each of the six categories. To be considered, photos must be a high-resolution shot in .jpg format (file size: 1 megabyte minimum; 5 megabytes maximum). The deadline for entries is January 8, 2022. Winners will be announced in our spring newsletter.
