Bringing another form of art, imagery and perspective to the show, the annual photo competition provides an engaging platform for those who appreciate Earth's natural beauty. The photography on display is selected by a panel of judges who base winners on criteria including creativity, composition, technical merit, distinction and interpretation of this year's theme, "20/20 Focus on Flowers." Photography categories range from abstract to still life—offering artists a unique chance to capture the essence of plants, flowers and gardening. Photographers of all experience levels are encouraged to submit their original photographs of flowers and plants. The competition is divided into two groups: youth ages 7 to 15, and adult ages 16 and older.
"To help welcome spring and fill our show walls with the colors of nature, we're looking for talented artists of all ages to compete in our annual Horticulture Photography Competition,"
Photos will be showcased in a special garden-exhibit gallery throughout the show, reaching more than 40,000 Show visitors. All class winners, along with best in show, will receive special recognition and be featured in the Show's Green Gallery. For competition details and registration, visit www.chicagoflower.com/
