If you fancy yourself as a bit of a photographer and think your images are good enough to print, then get snapping and be sure to enter the Your Garden Calendar Competition.
Starting from 1 July 2019 and running to 30 June 2020, the organisers of the competition are hoping to find 12 fantastic images that demonstrate the beauty of the Garden across the year to then be published in the first ever Australian Botanic Gardens Calendar.
To enter, just upload a photo taken at the Australian Botanic Garden to a public Instagram profile using #AustralianBG and #YourGardenCalendar in the caption - oh and you must be following the Australian Botanic Garden (@AustralianBG) on Instagram.
Each month, three (3) finalists will be chosen from the images entered that month to be voted on by the public. The winner from each month will then go into the calendar and all 36 finalists from across the year will be part of a public exhibition to mark the end of the comp.
Now remember, while birds are lovely and the paper daisies are amazing in spring, judges picking the finalists each month will be looking for images that show the breadth of beauty that the Garden displays across the year such as the Garden's landscapes, wildlife, people enjoying the Gardens and of course, the gorgeous flowers and plants on display.
So don't wait around, get snapping! But be sure to read the Terms and Condtions of entry to make sure you've got the correct hashtags to validate your entry.
And why not take your photographic skills to the next level with one of our workshops by local award-winning photographer, Glenn Smith. Glenn's next workshop will be on Sunday 9 February. See below to book.
