Entries Due May 1st 2017

It's easier than ever—no prints required.

The BSO photo competition has been a popular event. This year the categories are:

  1. Plant Portrait
  2. Plants in the Landscape
  3. Plants and people

To enter just email up to 5 digital photos as JPEG files between 2–8 MB to along with the electronic entry form. Label each image with the category number followed by a caption and email in batches of no more than 16 MB per batch. Entrants must be current members of the Botanical Society of Otago. Entry and membership forms can be downloaded from the downloads section of the BSO web site

There will be a prize of $50 for the winner of each category. Entries will be judged on technical and artistic merit by a panel of three judges. A separate prize of $50 may be awarded for members’ choice on the night. Photos will be displayed and winners will be announced at the meeting on 10 May. Only photos of native plants (with or without people and landscapes) will be considered for the calendar and pictures in landscape orientation are more suitable for this.
