My Resilient Garden—Photo Contest

The theme for this year’s Garden Show is resilience gardening. Is your garden resilient? Is there a plant that comes back reliably year-after-year? Does your garden bounce back after a hail storm? Does growing your own food make you feel great. Enter our contest by submitting a photo that captures resilient gardening.

Please ensure that the image submitted is at least 300 ppi when in a 4 x 6 inch format.

We will accept photos for the contest until April 14 at 6:00 pm, MDT. The first round of voting will start on April 16 and end on April 20 at 6:00 pm. The top five photographs selected in the first round of voting will be displayed during the 2021 Garden Show—Virtual, so the attendees can select a winner.

Photos must be the work of the contest entrant. As a condition of entering, the Society requests permission to use submitted photos and comments in program and promotional material, across media platforms. If there are people in your photo, be sure to have permission to use their image before submitting the photograph in this contest.
