If you are devoted to photography then this should interest you. The Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural Society has opened its annual photo competition. The classes, judging criteria and rules for the 2020 photo competition are available here. The entry deadline is February 3, 2020. The contest is open to Horticultural Society members only, but you can become a member at https://sites.google.com/site/sghortsoc/contact-us.
There are eight classes under which you can enter your photo to the competition including ornamental grasses, garden critters, an extreme close-up of a single yellow bloom, water droplets on a bloom or leaf, a white rose bloom or cluster, fall landscape, the SGHS annual garden tour and a public or private garden you visited during your travels.
Photos will be judged on horticultural and photographic values as well as appearance and impact of the photo. All photos must have been taken between 2017 to 2020 and entries are to be submitted in digital format.
The winners will be named at the Horticultural Society’s February 18, 2020 meeting at the Pretty Street Community Centre. The meeting begins at 7:30 pm and the submitted photos will be shown in a slideshow at the meeting.
