Give Us Your Best Shot

With diverse topography and plentiful shorelines, Traverse City produces 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 #GTRSunrisetoSunset19 Photo Contest.

Starting May 16, 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 #GTRSunrisetoSunset19. Each month through September 1, we will randomly chose a photo to win our monthly prize. The photo with the most overall votes by September 3, 2019 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 16 - September 1, 2019. Void where prohibited. Users must be 21 years of age and may enter once per day. Learn more about Contest Rules. Contest entry indicates permission to feature on the Sunrise to Sunset homepage via Chute (a content aggregation tool). Learn more about Chute terms and conditions.
