Photo Contest Winners Announced

I still have a great deal to do post-Seed Exchange , but I did not want to keep you all in suspense any longer if you were not able to attend the awards ceremony last Saturday. Here, listed below, are our winners ofthe 2009 Washington Gardener Magazine Photo Contest.

The winning photos will be published in the March/April 2009 issue of Washington Gardener Magazine and will be on display at a local photo show. I have posted a few here, but these small, low-res versions hardly do them justice.

You are ALL invited to the photo show opening reception. It is in the early eve on Friday, March 27 at the World Building in downtown Silver Spring, MD (on Georgia Avenue near the DC border). Full details coming soon.

Who is the judge for this photo contest?

Anon - our judge this year was Katherine Lambert, an accomplished studio photographer and also a local gardener. We do not talk abut our judges much or disclose them in advance as we have experienced inappropriate behavior by some contestants who try to contact or unduly influence them. Sad, but true.
