Share your favorite photos at the 2014 Master Gardener Update in Yankton on September 26, 27, 28.

 

In keeping with the Flower Power theme, all songs are Number One chart toppers from the 1960's. You may enter one picture for each category listed below.

 

BLOWIN' IN THE WIND (1962 by Bob Dylan) Take advantage of our South Dakota winds by photographing garden or landscape views reflecting our windy climate.

 

ROSES ARE RED, MY LOVE, VIOLETS ARE BLUE (1962 by Bobby Vinton)

Photos of flowers of all colors are acceptable.

 

WILD THING (1966 by The Troggs) You guessed it...photos of wild flowers or any other "wild" thing in your garden/landscape may be submitted.

 

PAINT IT BLACK (1966 by The Rolling Stones)

Black and white photos of any garden or landscape subject or photos emphasizing something black are welcome in this category.

 

Prizes will be awarded to the best photo in each category, as well as “Best of Show” and an additional award for “People’s Choice”. Ballots will be provided for “People’s Choice” in the registration packets.

 

Photos must be 8 X 10 prints mounted on white poster board, card stock paper or white matte board with a 2 inch border around the print (please no colored matting, mounting, or framing).

 

Put your name and specify the category on the back of each mounting. We are asking that you follow the above directions for mounting. We want all of the pictures to be judged fairly and objectively. If you bring a photo for the contest that does not meet the above criteria, we will be happy to display it, but it will not be judged with the competition entries. The quality of your photos may vary from original prints developed at a photo shop or printed on your home computer and printer.

 

Please indicate on the Update registration form if you plan to bring a picture (or pictures) for the contest. Limit one photo for each category please.
