Thank you for participating in the 2017 Sunrise to Sunset Photo Contest. The contest has now ended but will return in May of 2018.

Give Us Your Best Shot

With a diverse topography and plentiful shorelines, the skies above Traverse City regularly produce some of the most captivating sunrises and sunsets a person will ever see. These are watercolor scenes that will stop you in your tracks. We consider Traverse City the “Sunset Capital of the World,” so we thought it only fitting to offer an online photo contest that helped photographers showcase and share the best moments of a Traverse City sky. Introducing, the #GTRSunrisetoSunset Photo Contest.

Starting May 15, upload your best photo of a Grand Traverse area sunrise or sunset using the entry form below and you’ll be automatically entered into the online judging. Or, post an image on your Twitter, Instagram or Facebook page using #GTRSunrisetoSunset. Each month through September 1, we’ll reward the photo with the most online votes with a great prize. The photo with the most overall votes by September 1, 2017 will win an amazing Grand Traverse Resort and Spa vacation package valued at $1,200! Scroll below for more information and to submit your photos!

Contest runs May 15 - September 1, 2017. Void where prohibited. Users must be 21 years of age and may enter once per day. Learn more about Contest Rules.
