Washington Gardener Magazine PHOTO CONTEST Kicks Off!

The 8th Annual Washington Gardener Magazine Photo Contest kicks off now! Time to start sorting and picking out your best 2013 garden shots. The entry period is January 1-21, 2014.

Note that eligible entries must have been taken in the 2013 calendar year in a garden setting within 150-mile radius of Washington, DC.

We have four major entry categories:

~ Garden Views (landscape scenes)

~ Garden Vignettes (groupings of plants in beds or containers, unusual color or texture combinations, garden focal points, and still scenes)

~ Small Wonders (flower or plant part close-ups)

~ Garden Creatures (any living creature in a garden setting)

Remember that garden photos need not all be taken during the first week of May nor should they all be tight close-ups of a red rose. Look for the unusual and for beauty in the off-season too. Our judges give equal weight to the following criteria when evaluating the entries: technical merit, composition, impact, and creativity.

Anyone can enter: professional or amateur, adult or student, local area gardener or visiting DC tourist. Past winners have included teenagers entering their first-ever photo contest and home gardeners trying out their new digital cameras. Our next Grand Prize Winner could be YOU!

HI Patrick - The next Garden Photo Contest opens up for entry on Jan 1. 2015 -- any photo taken in the DC region during the 2014 calendar year is eligible for entry so be taking and gathering your images now.
If you want to meet up and go on photo excursions with fellow photographers, I recommend joining the DC Area Flower Safari - it is free - and you can find the group on Facebook.
