Now through the first of September, the Sleeping Bear Dunes Visitors Bureau will be accepting submissions to the first round of the “Manitou Moments” seasonal photography contest, themed “New Beginnings”.

How to Enter

Send us pictures of the date that made you fall in love with your partner, of children discovering the joys of the dunes, of new friends, or of the landscape coming back to life after a hard winter. 

Photos can be submitted by visiting the Sleeping Bear Dunes Visitors Bureau Facebook page and clicking on the on the “Manitou Moments” tab. We encourage including a caption to explain your photograph and how it reflects the contest’s theme.

Ten finalists will be determined by a jury of Visitors Bureau staff and the final prizes will be awarded based on the number of “likes” each photo receives on Facebook. All finalists will be featured on the Sleeping Bear Dunes Visitors Bureau website. The winner will be featured in the Bureau’s annual publication Manitou, the Magazine of Leelanau, and receive a $100 gift card. The first prize will be awarded at the end of September.
