Capture Northwest Wisconsin during photo contest

Summer in northwest Wisconsin is full of fun —kayak trips, family camping, berry picking — you name it. To celebrate all the fun to be had during summer in the northwoods, the Tourism Advisory Committee of the International Trade, Business and Economic Development Council of Northwest Wisconsin has launched a summer fun photo contest.

People can upload their photos using the contest app on the group’s Facebook page. Photos must be taken in Ashland, Barron, Bayfield, Burnett, Chippewa, Douglas, Iron, Polk, Price, Rusk, Sawyer or Washburn Counties in northwestern Wisconsin. Once uploaded to the contest, Facebook users have the chance to vote on the photo that they like best. The photo with the most votes at the end of the contest period on Aug. 16 wins the contest. A $250 cash card is up for grabs for the winning photographer.

More details, along with the contest entry instructions and official rules, can be viewed at or on the Travel Northwest Wisconsin Facebook page.
