UDBG photo contest

UD Botanic Gardens to mark anniversary plant sale with photo contest

Some may have thought spring’s early arrival was the perfect chance to cradle their cameras or focus their phones to take photos of the colorful onslaught of spring flowers, but this blast of winter will be a great opportunity for photographers of all levels to wander the snowy grounds of the University of Delaware Botanic Gardens for that perfect image to enter in the UDBG 25th anniversary Plant Sale Photo Contest.

Submissions are due by noon on Monday, April 12. Five winners will receive gift certificates to the plant sale (April 28-29) and a plant sale T-shirt. For complete information and details on how to submit images, go to the UDBG website.

The contest accepts submissions in two categories: UDBG Landscapes and UDBG Plants. The landscapes category accepts images from any of the UDBG gardens that include plants and/or landscape elements. The plants category is for close-ups of UDBG flowers, fruits, leaves, stems or other plant parts. There is a maximum of two entries per person per category.

To enjoy exclusive member benefits, join the UDBG Friends online or contact Melinda Zoehrer at BotanicGardens@udel.edu.

The gardens are open year-round to provide ideas and inspiration, or for a quiet stroll.
