Got a Great Pic? Show Us Your Patch of Michigan and Win, Week 14!

Hey Michigan! This is the last week to show us your Mitten pride in photos. The photo that best says 'Michigan' in content, tone and spirit will win our week 14 prize—a $50 gift certificate for Andiamo restaurants.

Got a cool Michigan pic on your phone or digital camera? Enter up to three of them into the Your Patch of Michigan photo contest this week!

You don't need to be a professional photographer to win. The single qualification for photos you submit is that they say "Michigan." If it oozes "Michigan," it qualifies.

Each weekly winner will earn a prize, and we're in week 14, which runs through noon, Sept. 4. 

The week 14 prize is a gift certificate for Andiamo restaurants, valued at $50.

entries show off some of what is the best Michigan has to offer – and more importantly, what Michigan means to each person. Previous winners can be viewed 

After Labor Day, we'll pick a grand prize winner from all of the weekly winners.

The grand prize winner will receive a certificate for a two-night stay at Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island (to be used before Oct. 31, 2013, and blackout dates and other restrictions may apply). The approximate retail value of the Grand Prize is $600.

I love your contest. There are so many beautiful pictures of Michigan I keep looking over and over at them. It encourages people to keep their cameras handy because you never know when the opportunity 'to snap' will arises. Thanks
