By submitting an entry, each participant agrees to the complete rules of the contest. While we enjoy seeing our fellow gardeners and their friends/family members in pictures, any photos and videos that clearly show any person's face may require the participant to complete a model release form before being eligible to win any prize. 


Entries will be judged based on quality, originality, social media interactions (comments/likes/shares), creativity, and overall impact. Any submission qualifies the participant for any prize at any time for the duration of the contest; participants may not select the category for which their submission is intended. Participants may submit as many unique entries as they would like. Each unique album/series containing multiple photos will count as a single entry. 17 prizes will be awarded, as follows:
