We have kicked off our efforts to create the 2019 Visit Yosemite | Madera County Visitors Guide.

Click on a cover image to view that edition online.

The design this year will focus on the Road Trips through Madera County & Yosemite in each season.

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
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.

For the cover photo, we are looking for a vertical image of a Yosemite icon that includes a roadway.

We would still love to see your images

The offical deadline has passed and we would like to thank you to everyone who submitted. If you missed the deadline please submit to be considered for the 2020 Visitors Guide. If your image is something we are looking for we may even consider it for 2019.

  • Submission Guidelines
    What you need to know. Please download and review.
  • Model Release
    A model release will be required if a recognizable face is within your photo. If you do not have your own model release form you can use this one.
Want to submit your photos?

It's easy just email a thumbnail resolution of the photo to both:

You may also send us a link to your online web gallery (although that is less effective than sending a few of your favorite photos). You can also drop off a photo CD or bring in a flash drive to the visitor center in Oakhurst at 40343 Highway 41 (see Steve or Rhonda).

Due to the size needed on final images do not send full resolutions as the sizes needed are very large. Full sized images will be required if your photo is selected, all photos must meet resolution requirements.

If you know other photographers who might be interested in submitting photos please send them this information.
