What is a U.P. ambassador?

An Upper Peninsula Ambassador is someone who is passionate about Michigan’s U.P. and represents it well through their photos, videos or blogs on social media. They’re someone who loves outdoor adventure, exploring the U.P. and sharing the natural beauty of our region — the sights, trails, waterfalls, beaches, great lakes and wilderness. It's someone who inspires others to go outside and play in the U.P.

We’re curating a team of U.P. natives or U.P. enthusiasts who frequently visit to be our Upper Peninsula Ambassadors. If you’re out exploring and capturing everything the U.P. has to offer — outdoor recreation, historic landmarks, unique foods, events and attractions — you could be a great candidate! We want to partner with you and share your passion with others. Here’s what’s in it for you:

Ambassador Perks

  • Official U.P. Ambassador swag (t-shirt, cap, etc.)

  • Entry into exclusive prize giveaways

  • Featured on our Upper Peninsula Ambassadors landing page (below) 

  • Featured on our social media platforms (we’ll tag you on social to introduce you to our followers)

  • Featured on our travel blog (we’ll share your blog posts if you’re a blogger)

  • Rights to use the title “Upper Peninsula Ambassador” on your own social accounts and website

  • Our goal for the Upper Peninsula Ambassador program is to find people who are passionate about the U.P. and are posting their adventures on social media for others to follow along. We want to showcase your amazing talent and personal experiences.
