We’ve seen some incredible photos from the participants at past Ice Fests and we were thinking that it’s a shame not to reward such creativity. So this year we’re introducing our first Ice Fest Photo Contest!
Here’s how it’s going to work:
- During the weekend of Ice Fest (February 5th through the 8th) snap some sweet photos. Photos of climbing, partying, approaches, whatever as long as you feel it represents your Ice Fest experience.
- Post your photos to social media (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) with the hashtag #michiganicefest2015. You can enter as many times as you want.
- When the event is over, all of the photos tagged with #michiganicefest2015 will be judged by a panel of Ice Fest staff. Photos will be judged based on some seriously strict guidelines. Exposure, composition, creativity, badassness and the panels general feeling toward the photo will determine the winner. Extra consideration will be given to pictures with more likes, shares and retweets because it always pays to be social. You must attend the Ice Fest to be eligible and photos need to be taken during the event.
- The panel will decide the winner in the week following Ice Fest and a big announcement will be made on the Michigan Ice Fest Facebook page. So you’ll have to keep an eye on the Facebook page to see if you won.
Pretty easy. It doesn’t cost you a dime and we know you’re posting all of your sweet Ice Fest shots anyway, so you might as well try and win something. “Win something?” you say. Of course. It wouldn’t be a Michigan Ice Fest contest without an incredible prize. You’ve seen our raffle, right? So what is this amazing prize? It’s not just a prize, it’s a prize package. The package will include a registration for the 2016 Michigan Ice Fest and a class of your choice at next years event. On top of this already stellar prize we are throwing in gear and clothing from some of our event sponsors. Crazy!
So when you get to Munising make sure you pull out your phone or camera and take your best shot at winning the Michigan Ice Fest 2105 photo contest!
