Tulip Time Festival Artwork Competition Announced

HOLLAND, MI – Tulip Time Festival is pleased to announce the 2022 First Bloem Festival Artwork Competition through which a work of art is selected for the official Tulip Time poster. Each year, the Festival invites a juror to select the Top 20 pieces for First Bloem. Mary Sundstrom, Visual artist and Exhibitions Director of the Holland Area Arts Council, will be the 2022 juror.

Through 2010, posters were commissioned work from selected artists. Beginning in 2011, the Festival Artwork Competition began. Nine local artists have been awarded this honor:

  • 2011 Beth Charles – “Drama Queens”
  • 2012 Brittany Strabbing – “Beautiful Dream”
  • 2013 Maggie Schultz – “Clothed in Splendor”
  • 2014 Karin Nelson – “Resilience”

  • 2019 Carolyn Stich – “Enduring Delft”
  • 2020 Aron Lowe – “Dutch Dance”

In 2020, due to the pandemic restrictions, a competition was not possible. The Festival commissioned a piece from Aron Lowe, the 2020 winning artist, and Hear Ye, Hear Ye, Spring is Here became the 2021 Festival Artwork. Now, for 2022, we are pleased to be able to reintroduce the competition to all local West Michigan artists.

Artists in Ottawa, Allegan, Kent, Muskegon and Kalamazoo counties are invited to submit artwork. Submissions for the 2022 Festival Artwork Competition will be accepted September 27 – 30, 2021. The artwork theme should represent Tulip Time’s mission to celebrate Holland’s tulips, Dutch heritage and community. The winner of the 2022 competition will be announced at the First Bloem Reveal, a special unveiling reception held in February.

2021 West Michigan Photo Contest Now Accepting Entries Through July 28th

submitted by the West Michigan Tourist Association

The West Michigan Tourist Association (WMTA) is excited to announce the launch of their 2021 West Michigan Photo Contest. With so much beauty found in West Michigan, the West Michigan Tourist Association wants travelers to show off what they love most about this beautiful side of the state, and win some great West Michigan prizes! The contest is looking for traveler photo submissions from all around West Michigan. This region covers the entire west half of Michigan from the Indiana border to Mackinac Island and into the Upper Peninsula.

“Being able to share all of these great photos from around West Michigan is truly a highlight of each year!” said Courtney Sheffer, WMTA’s Marketing Director. “We love seeing the community involvement with this contest, and the unique perspectives that each individual shares with their photos.” 

Sheffer also noted that photos do not need to be taken this month in order to submit them to the photo contest. “If you have West Michigan photos from your past visits to the area, we encourage you to enter those as well! West Michigan is photogenic all seasons of the year, so don’t feel that you’re only limited to submitting summer photos.”

All photo entries must be received by July 28th, 2021. Judges will be awarding prizes in the categories of “Nature,” “People,” and “Beach/Lake/Lighthouse,” with an additional prize awarded via public voting by WMTA’s Facebook audience. In addition to receiving a West Michigan prize pack, all winning photos will be featured in WMTA’s upcoming West Michigan Carefree Travel Guide, printed in January of 2022. 

Photo submissions should include first & last name of photographer, city where the photograph was taken, and a short description of the photo.

The accepted photo formats are high resolution (300 dpi+) jpeg/jpg or tiff. CMYK is preferred. Please visit the Photo Contest Page for full rule and entry requirements.

Thank you to the 2021 West Michigan Photo Contest sponsors who make this contest possible:

Muskegon Storyville will also officially open with a Ribbon-cutting ceremony on the same day. Storyville Villages are early literacy, child-sized villages where children ages 0-5 and their parents/caregivers can let their imagination run wild. Villages are located in the Montague, Muskegon Heights and Norton Shores library branches. “There has been tremendous excitement and support for this new early literacy initiative”, says Doug Hughes, Chair of the MADL Board. “It’s a one-of-a-kind learning place in Muskegon County that supports school readiness,” says Hughes.

Since the pandemic, MADL has eliminated overdue fines, and now offers free wireless printing, curbside pickup and a new Library app which makes it easy to access your account and the catalog to order books. MADL is offering more digital resources, such as BrainFuse, a one-on-one tutoring service and Tumblebooks, animated talking picture books for kids, and extensive 24/7 Wi-Fi service.

This is a great way for people to get out of their routines and try some new places, new dishes and support our community.”

Taste of Muskegon is produced by the Downtown Development Authority. Taste of Muskegon Tour will take place on June 12-19 and Taste of Muskegon will return to Hackley Park September 24-25.
