Wildflower Photographs Needed for Gillette Visitor Center Spring Photo Contest

The Gillette Sand Dune Visitor Center in P.J. Hoffmaster State Park is hosting a wildflower photo contest in conjunction with its annual Spring Blooms in the Dunes celebration scheduled for May 7.


The photo contest, which is open to all Michigan amateur photographers, is again being sponsored by the West Shore Camera Club. Entries will be accepted until April 22. Each photograph submitted must be of a native Michigan wildflower and have the name, address and phone number of the photographer on the back. Only prints 8x10 or larger and matted without frame or glass will be accepted. There is a $3 entry fee required per photograph, with a limit of two entries per person.

Other contest rules:
* Each photograph must have the name of the flower identified on the back. Unidentified photographs will not be accepted. Photographs of garden flowers, mushrooms or ferns will not be accepted.
* Previous winning photographs will not be accepted.
* Amateurs only.
* Entries will be returned after May 22 if a postage-paid envelope large enough to accommodate the photograph(s) is provided.

Winners will be announced and prizes awarded on May 7 during Spring Blooms in the Dunes. The first-place winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to the Camera Shop of Muskegon, which is donating all prizes. All entries will be displayed at the visitor center until May 22. Entries may be hand delivered or mailed to the Gillette Sand Dune Visitor Center, P.J. Hoffmaster State Park, 6585 Lake Harbor Rd., Muskegon, MI 49441. Entry checks should be made payable to the West Shore Camera Club.

The DNR is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state's natural resources for current and future generations.
