Discover Wisconsin, the nation's longest-running tourism TV show, has launched its popular photo contest via social media. In partnership with Wisconsin Counties Association and Sargento, 12 fan-submitted photos will be published in Discover Wisconsin's annual calendar, featuring images of Wisconsin destinations. The photo contest is accessible on the Discover Wisconsin Facebook page (facebook.com/discoverwisconsin). Entries will be accepted until July 31.
"Our annual photo contest and print calendar continues to grow in popularity year after year," Mariah Haberman, co-host and director of brand development for Discover Wisconsin, said in apress release. "Photos of Wisconsin are submitted from all over the country and the calendars are also shipped nationwide. Our crew is blown away by the submissions that roll in every summer!"
Following the submission and voting period, the Discover Wisconsin crew will select the top 12 photos to be featured in the official 2018 Discover Wisconsin Calendar. Of the top 12, the crew will also select the photo to be featured on the cover of the calendar and the cover of a 2018 issue of Wisconsin Counties magazine. The 2018 Discover Wisconsin Calendars will be available for purchase this fall at shop.discoverwisconsin.com for $5 plus $2 shipping and handling.
The calendar is distributed in partnership with Sargento, a longstanding sponsor of Discover Wisconsin TV.
The winning photo of the 2017 calendar's cover spot, an icy depiction of the Apostle Islands Sea Caves, was taken by Chad Briesemeister and was chosen from more than 2,000 submissions.
Entrants must submit a digital photo, no smaller than 5" x 7", that features a Wisconsin destination and include their name, address, email address, photo location and photo caption. Discover Wisconsin will announce the cover photo winner via various social media channels.
