Colby Chilcote, Marketing Director at environmental conservation nonprofit Huron Pines explains, “There’s a strong connection between natural resources, recreation and vibrant communities and we can’t wait to see people capture that in their entries.”
“We love to see people enjoying our beautiful area, and often publish photos that Visitor’s send to us. We use photos for ads in local newspapers, regional magazines like, Adventure Outdoors, Michigan Trails, Bird Watchers Digest and RoadRunner and on travel websites like Pure Michigan and West Michigan Tourist Association. People that submit entries, even If they aren’t the winning entries, can expect to see their photos or videos still appearing years from now,” says Ilene Wilson, Executive Director, of the Grayling Visitor’s Bureau.
Traci Cook, Executive Director of the Grayling Regional Chamber of Commerce, states “we are the business and community advocate of Crawford County, focusing on the protection and advancement of economic and business development, community image, natural resources and quality of life in the region. What better way to promote our area than to ask those who live, work and play in our area to help us promote it!”
