Garden Superheroes (Take 2)
We are continuing our “Garden Superheroes” photo contest. We have modified the contest to offer it online. It’s a fun activity that we can do now and great opportunity for us the look at garden photos and think about the uplifting things that have happened in our gardens.
Do you have a heroic plant that shows its super-strength with its consistently-outstanding performance or blooms? Or perhaps it’s a fantastic plant that you can call on to lift your spirits? Maybe your garden superhero is a lady bug that conquers the evil aphids! Share your imagination and photography talent by sending us your best “superhero” photo.
Please ensure that the image submitted is high resolution and is at least 300 ppi when in a 4 x 6 inch format. Files should not exceed 6000 kb in size.
There will be two rounds of online voting. The first round will be used to choose ten favourite photos from the entries. The second round of online voting will be used to select the winner from the 10 favourite photos. Photos must be the work of the contest entrant. As a condition of entering, the Society requests permission to use submitted photos 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.
The deadline for submitting photos online to enter the contest is midnight, April 8. (The Society reserves the right to stop accepting submissions at any time.) Online voting to select the ten favourite photos will open on Friday, April 10 and close on Sunday, April 19 at midnight. A second round of online voting will be used to select the winner from the 10 favourite photos chosen in the first round of voting. The second round of voting will open on April 21 and close at noon on April 30. The winner will be announced on May 1.
After the contest closes and the winner is announced, the winner and the other top ten favourite photo photographers will receive recognition for their work in an issue of our e-news and on our website.
The photo contest winner will receive a gift card to a local (Calgary area) garden centre.
