Award-Winning Fall Images Selected for
“Picture Yourself in Allegan County” Photo Contest

(ALLEGAN, Mich) – The Allegan County Tourist Council is pleased to announce the winners in the “Picture Yourself in Allegan County” Fall 2012 Photo Contest. The winning photo in the Adult Division titled “Riverfront” was submitted by Allegan resident Pat Jenkins and captured beautiful fall colors on the riverfront in the City of Allegan. Her prize this season is a $40 gift certificate to the Four Roses Café in Plainwell; prize donated by Four Roses Café.


A lovely photo titled “Fall Ride in the Woods” was selected as the Youth Division winner for the Fall 2012 Photo Contest. The winning photo was submitted by fourteen year old Sierra DeKraker of Allegan and was taken while enjoying horseback riding in the Allegan State Game Area. Her prize this season are two tickets to The Regent Theatre in Allegan that include multiple movie admissions and concession stand items valued up to $50; prize contributed by The Regent Theatre.


The winning photos will be posted on the Tourist Council’s website at www.VisitAlleganCounty.com, as well as the organization’s Facebook group page (search Allegan County Tourist Council) and will be submitted to local newspapers along with a media release. They will also appear in the 2014 Allegan County Visitor’s Guide.

The Tourist Council hopes the photo contest will inspire local residents and visitors alike to get out and capture the true flavor of the county – in pictures. All submitted images are forwarded along to members of the Tourist Council without photographer identification, to keep the judging fair.

Photos are judged in Youth (17 and under) and Adult (open to both amateurs and professionals) divisions. The next deadline is April 1st for winter images. All those with great winter 2013 photos are encouraged to enter!

All entries must be in color and print submissions must be at least 8x10 in size. Attach a label to the back of the print with your name, address, phone number and email (if available). Do NOT write on the photo itself. Also, please do not put a backing on the photo. Digital images must be of a high resolution and must be of sufficient quality to be used in print media. Prints, negatives and CDs will be not returned, so please retain your original. Entries may be dropped off at or mailed to the Allegan County Parks Recreation & Tourism Office at 3255 122nd Avenue (Suite 103) in Allegan, 49010. Images may also be emailed to tourism@allegancounty.org
