Tips to Help You Win

Winning photos will have the following features:

  • Images that show off Grand Rapids or West Michigan locations will be preferred
  • Clear faces // blurry images will not be considered
  • Proper lighting
  • Portrait (vertical) orientation
  • High resolution // phone pics could potentially win but most phones do not take high enough res pictures for print
  • No filters // please do not submit pics with instagram, snapchat, or other filters applied
  • A good amount of “not-busy” space around the subjects for words/text placement
  • Permission from the people (or guardians of the people) in the photo to use their image
  • You may only submit your own photos
