Judging Criteria and Prizes - Winter Garden Photo Comp

Postby ian » Wed Jul 26, 2006 7:58 am

The Garden Express Winter Garden Photo Competition is for the photographs of gardens that reflect winter and/or the plants that are prominent in winter.

Photos will preferably be of garden scenes rather than specimen shots of individual flowers. Photos should show what can be achieved using relevant plants, particularly in combination, to enhance a garden. The photos can incorporate plants used in pots or other containers, as well as in the garden.

Photos are not restricted to the range of plants and garden features available from Garden Express, though the appropriate inclusion of these will be a positive attribute.

One of the criteria is that the garden should be achievable by a typical Australian gardener without unreasonable effort or expertise or expenditure. Ideally the photo would inspire others to try similar ideas in their own garden.

First Prize is a Garden Express Voucher to the value of $200.

Second Prize is a Garden Express Voucher to the value of $60.

Closing date for entries is September 30th 2006.

You are going first, aren't you Pokie??? Actually, this should be really interesting, especially with the 'gardens that reflect winter' bit. I'm really keen to see some cold-ed gardens - and the non-quite-so-warm northern ones! :D

I can't inspire my hellebores tolook into the camera... they seem to like the ground more.

Pam, I do believe that you have some rather beautiful winter colours that you showed us at the beginning of winter - particularly that Snowflake!! :D
