The deadline for submitting entries to the Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural Society’s 2023 Photo Competition is February 1, 2023. There are eight classes for entries this year. They include:
Class 1: Because 2022 was the Canadian Year of the Garden, and Red was the colour of the year, show us the colour Red in the garden.
Class 2: Water is Life. Capture a pond, lake, stream, puddle, fountain, falling rain in a wide setting. The landscape is important.
Class 3: Stems, Tendrils, and Leaves. The camera angle should lead the eye to vegetables or fruit.
Class 4: “Colours Are the Smiles of Nature.” Quote is courtesy of Leigh Hunt. Capture the things your eyes are attracted to in the fall.
Class 5: The Beauty of Bugs. Closeups of interesting insects. Macro shots are accepted.
Class 6: Snow in the Garden. Ornamental grasses, plumes, dried seed heads or berries can be part of the inclusive picture.
Class 7: Patterns. A repetition of shape, colour or size found in plants. Indoor plants are eligible as well.
Class 8: John Curry Memorial Plaque. An historical activity shot within Goulbourn (Stittsville, Richmond, or Munster) that is newspaper worthy.
Photos will be judged on horticultural and photographic value, appearance and impact, and must have been taken within 2021-2023. Our judge for this year’s competition is Diane Partlo. The winners will be announced at the February 21st meeting of the Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural Society.
This competition is open to members of the SGHS. To become a member send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Membership is $15 per person or $25 per family.
