[ Deadline March 1, 2022 ]
We are holding our 2nd photo contest. Our 2019 photo contest was a success, where we had some wonderful photos submitted and selected to be hung in the cabins [ See the results from 2019 ]
We are looking for the 2nd batch of photos (21 photos) which we can print on wood, and hang in the historic cabins and other high visibility locations at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge.
Rather than calling upon our own archives, we thought we would put a call out to the talented pool of photographers that actively take photos of the lovely and rugged Keweenaw.
Submitted photos will be included in a pool and reviewed by the staff at the Lodge to determine which 21 photos will match well in the cabins and Lodge. We have targeted 42 spots to hang photos at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge. Thus, each photo will be printed twice, and hung in two different cabins and/or the Lodge building.
Below is are examples of how photos look on woodprints:
If you are interested in submitting a photo, please complete the form below and provide a low-resolution copy of your photo. If your photo is selected, we will request a high-resolution version of the photo at that time (to be provided by
March 7, 2022 March 14, 2022).
If you are wanting to submit more than one photo, submit the form multiple times. You can submit up to 3 different photos. If for some reason you lose count of how many photos you have submitted, we will take the last 3 photos you have submitted.
The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2022.
If your photo(s) is selected, we will print the photo(s) and hang it at the resort. You will retain the rights to the photo, and the Lodge does not have the right to resale or use the photo for other than the purpose of having the photo hung in the cabins or around the Lodge.
Photo credit will be shown on each print, providing the Lodge guests and visitors information on who took the photo.
In addition, if at least one of your photos is selected, we would like to offer you a two-night stay in the cabin where your photo is being hung and highlighted for guests.
[ The deadline has passed for submitting photos, and thus the submission form has been turned off. Thank you to all the individuals that submitted their photos. ]
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the criteria for submitting a photo?
For the photo to be considered, it must have been taken in the Keweenaw, as we are looking to highlight the Keweenaw for guests that are staying at or visiting the Lodge.
How many photos can I submit?
You can submit a total of 3 photos. If you forget how many photos you submitted, and for some reason, you submit more than 3 photos, then we will take the last 3 photos you submitted.
Can I submit a painting?
No. For this submission, we are looking for only photos.
Who will be deciding which photos will be selected?
The staff at the Lodge will be making the decisions on which photos to include in the 21 photos that will be printed and hung in the cabins and / or Lodge.
When will we know if our photo(s) was selected?
We will start to review the photos after March 1, 2022, and will send out an announcement to those that submitted photos by March 5, 2022.
If my photo is selected, when do I need to provide a hi-resolution version of the photo?
As part of the original submission, a low-resolution version of your photo was provided. If your photo is selected, you will be requested to provide a hi-resolution version of the photo by March 7, 2022.
Will you be paying each photographer a fee for her/his photo?
No, we will not be paying a photography fee — so no cash reward. We understand that this might dissatisfy some photographers. If that is the case, we understand if you would rather not submit your photos in that case.
….so what benefit do you get in having your photo selected to be printed and hung in the cabins at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge?
If your photo is selected, we will print your photo on a woodprint made in Michigan. We will print 2 copies as it will be hung in 2 different cabins or around the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge. The prints will have your name on them (e.g. Photo Credit: <your name>). This will give you exposure to Lodge visitors or guests that stay in the cabins which your photos are hanging. In addition, we will provide a 2-night stay for free in the cabin in which your photo is hanging….so you can see how your photo looks in the cabin. [ dates for your stay should be between May 1, 2022 and April 30, 2023 ]
