Itasca Strong Photo Contest

What is the Itasca Strong Photo Contest

We are looking for images that represent the different seasons of Itasca County. Photos can include nature, pets, family, art, and food and beverages. The photos we receive will have a chance to be featured in our visitor guide. In addition, some photos may be used for our social media sites or website. All of the photographers will be given credit if their photo is used. Not only could your photo be showcased, but any photo submitted will be in the running to win a prize up to $500! You can submit as many high-quality photos as you want!


The Itasca Strong Photo Contest will run November 1st- 30th. The first-place prize will be awarded: $500. Second place will receive $250. Third place will receive $100. The winners of the photo contest will be announced on December 1st on the Visit Grand Rapids Facebook and Instagram pages.
