Submit your photos to the
2017 Yosemite Sierra Visitors Guide

We have kicked off our efforts to create our 2017 Yosemite Sierra Visitors Guide. This year we're asking for your input to make this edition the best ever and yet again the best travel tool for our visitors to use in exploring the Madera County and Yosemite areas.

Our 2017 theme is "Play Like A Local".

We are looking for photographs and stories of locals people doing their favorite activity in the area, either inside or outside the park, for all four seasons (we will be highlighting these things for each season). The broad categories defined are the following:

  • Wineries & Agri-Tourism
  • Bass Lake
  • Outdoor Adventures
  • Arts & Entertainment
  • Yosemite Museums & Historical Tours

In honor of the Mariposa Grove Restoration completion summer of 2017, we are looking for an amazing photo in Mariposa Grove for the cover of the guide. Other photos from outside Eastern Madera County will not be accepted.

So think outside the box! What have you seen and done that impressed you the most? What is the most fun you've had inside Yosemite? What would you consider "must-see, must-do" activities in our area? Any special secrets you can (or have) imparted to our guests? We'd like photos of things you've done that are outside the norm, off the beaten path, in seasons where guests don't usually visit. You are the experts, and we want to share your expertise.

Submission Deadline : September 1, 2016
