MI "Wish You Were Here" Campaign - Sponsored by AIGA

It’s no secret that Michigan has gotten a bad rap in the media over the past few years. With the Big Three fighting on the ropes, plenty of unfriendly lens have been focused on Michigan. Now’s your chance show the world who Michigan really is. Wish You Were Here is an image campaign in which we ask you, Michigan residents, to contribute pictures of your favorite place in our state. Get out your camera, paint brush, pen and paper—whatever medium suits your fancy. Whether it’s a Saturday morning at Eastern Market, a romantic get-away to Mackinac Island, or a big weekend at the Ann Arbor Summer Festival— anything you can do or any place you can visit in Michigan goes.

We will be printing and mailing postcards of the winning entries to AIGA chapters across the country to help spread the word that there are still countless postcard-worthy activities and places to enjoy here in Michigan. Additionally, winning entries will be showcased at a gallery event and reception (date TBD).

Submit your 4.25"×6" design through the AIGA website no later than January 31st, 2011. To get more details on submission guidelines, judging process, and qualifications visit here. Make sure to include a brief description to accompany your image for the message on the back — 140-character limit.
