2017 Governor's Photo Contest

If you are a photographer, and a North Dakota resident, start taking and collecting your recent North Dakota images for the North Dakota Governor's Photo Contest for Travel and Tourism. Winners receive cash prizes and will have their photographs on display in the Capitol. You have until August 31 to get entered.

This year's categories are:

  • Adventure and Recreation
  • Places to Visit
  • Communities and Events
  • Fun with Friends and Family
  • Scenery
  • Wildlife

Winning photographs are selected by a panel based on the quality of the image and how well it showcases North Dakota as a Legendary place to visit. You can find a complete list of the contest rules here.

The best way to enter is by joining the North Dakota Travel Flickr group here. Upload your high-resolution photos and tag them with “ND2017Contest” and the appropriate contest category. Don’t forget to include contact information.
