Mount Tom, Holyoke (Adam McClellan)

With more than 900,000 visitors each week, serves as the Commonwealth’s virtual front door.

Residents sign up for vital social services, business owners find information about regulations, and interested parties keep up with the latest state government news. That’s why we’re focused on making as welcoming and helpful as possible for everyone who visits us.

In our efforts to continually improve our site, we’ve redesigned our homepage to spotlight images that reflect the beauty and diversity of Massachusetts’ landscapes — and we want to see what you’ve got.

Snap a pic and enter your favorite Bay State hidden gem in our photo contest! We’ll choose some of the best to represent Massachusetts on our homepage.

We’ll also host a photo gallery of submissions, so that everyone can enjoy the scenery here in the Commonwealth and appreciate the photographic talent inspired by our great state.
