The Metropolitan Detroit community has been participating in White Chapel's Tulip Festival Photo Contest since 2011. Amateur and professional photographers have entered hundreds of beautiful images, many including people, families and even pets. Hundreds of thousands have viewed the image galleries and voted for their favorite pictures.
