Photo Contest: Show Us Your Patch of Michigan and Win, Week 8!
Hey Michigan! Show us your Mitten pride in photos from anywhere in the state. We'll award weekly prizes for the photos that say 'Michigan' in content, tone and spirit.
You don't need to be Ansel Adams to win our weekly Your Patch of Michigan photo contest this summer!
The single qualification for photos you submit is that they say "Michigan." If it oozes "Michigan," it qualifies.
Each weekly winner will earn a prize.
This week's prize is a one month pass for unlimited visits to the new SuiteSweat infared sauna studio in Novi, valued at $79. The infared saunas are used for health and wellness, including weight loss, detoxification, heart health and pain relief.
Last week, about 120 photos were submitted to the contest, showing off some of what is the best Michigan has to offer – and more importantly, what Michigan means to each person.
After Labor Day, we'll pick a grand prize winner from all of the weekly winners.
The grand prize winner will receive a certificate for a two-night stay at Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island (to be used before Oct. 31, 2013, and blackout dates and other restrictions may apply). The approximate retail value of the Grand Prize is $600.
Do you need to be Ansel Adams to win this? No. The single qualification for photos you send is that they say "Michigan" to you. If it oozes "Michigan," it qualifies.

In the photo caption area, be sure to include your real, full name and the place where the photo was taken, as well as any other relevant information about what the photo shows. The email address you use to register with Patch must be a working one so we can reach you should we have questions or should you be selected as a winner.
Each week, we'll have a new gallery and a new winner.
This week's photos will be judged from entries submitted July 17-23, 2012.
The contest is open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 and older. And this wouldn't be a contest without a complete list of official contest rules.
