Reminder For May’s Picture This Photo Contest

– Posted in: Garden Photography

A reminder to get your Picture This entry in for May’s contest.  Although we don’t have an appointed judge for this month’s contest, there will be a winner,  chosen by one of our Regular Contributors, just because she or he loves the photo.

The subject is Spring Fling. Your composition  should evoke a sense of whimsy, fun and spontaneity. The subject matter is your choice, as long as it has something to do with gardening and/or nature.  As always, explain the intent of your photo.


You must have a blog in order to enter. Please  link directly to your photo rather than to the accompanying story. Also add a link to GGW in your post so that your readers can click onto Picture This and look at all of the entries.

Your photo must be able to be copied from your site. That makes it possible for us to collect all the entries in one place for easier judging.

Photos should be approximately 500 pixels on the long side. If you’re using Microsoft Office Picture Manager to resize your images, there is a pre-set resize option for “Web – Large”  which comes in at 640 x 480. That would work just fine.
The deadline for the contest has been extended through midnight on Tuesday, May 25th.

In order to make May’s Picture This competitive, we need several more entries. So get out your camera, let loose and take the winning photo that shouts out SPRING FLING.

Also, thanks to those of you who took the time to take our quick survey about Picture This. We’re getting some fascinating and very helpful responses. If you haven’t filled it out yet, there’s still time. We’ll keep the survey open until the end of May. You can find it here.

Are entries still going to be due on the 21st by midnight?

No Melody. As it says in the post, I’ve extended the deadline through May 25th at midnight. Fran

Oh! Oops! I read all three posts about it and must have skimmed right past. Sorry ’bout that.
