The Detroit News' Celebrate Michigan Photo Contest

May 27, 2020

The Detroit News invites photographers across the state to participate in their 'Celebrate Michigan Photo Contest'. The summer-long contest offers three categories:
  • People and Places

  • Woods and Wildlife

  • Four-Season Fun

Artists may enter as often they like, as long as they were the photographer and the photo wasn’t selected as a Celebrate Michigan finalist in previous years.
Each week, judges from the Detroit News photo staff will select 4 photo finalists, 16 total in each category over the entire contest period. At the end of the contest, The Detroit News photo staff judges will select one winner in each category. One People's Choice winner in each category will be chosen by an online public vote, Aug. 20-24.
Each of the six winners will receive $300. At the end of the contest, three Awards of Excellence will be chosen by the Detroit News photo staff from the remaining finalists of all three themes, and will receive $100 each.
