Let’s think about spring! Is there a photo that brings spring to mind every time you look at it? Enter that photo in our Think Spring! photo contest to see if others also think the photo captures the essence of spring.

We will accept photos for the contest until January 31 at 11:00 pm, MST. Five photos will be selected from the entries as finalists and displayed at the Think Spring! event. Think Spring! participants will vote to select the winner. Voting will close on February 13 at 11:00 pm. The winner will be announced in the February 18 Gardeners’ Corner e-news.

The photo contest winner will receive a copy of Kevin Lee’s book Your Trees: What They Want You to Know and a $25 gift card from greengate Garden Centres.  

Please ensure that the image submitted is at least 300 ppi when in a 4 x 6 inch format (1200 x 1800 px).  

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. Each person may enter three photos.
