2016 Photo Contest Adds New Category!

Once again the Gardens are a bloomin’ and the Photo Contest Committee is gearing up for their annual Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens Photo Contest. The Committee wishes to thank all of the Botanical Gardens 2015 contest participants for sharing their wonderful photos and the contest judges, Nadine Aiello, John Rogers and Paul Melo.

The Photo Contest is ongoing because the Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens is always open and available for year-round photographers. Just think of the photo opportunities with these rain clouds, don’t be shy, it’s only water! What will it be? Color? Black and White? The sun is peeking where’s the shadowing? What’s blooming? Who’s on First? Grab your camera and visit the Gardens!

The contest is open to all ages in categories including Wildlife, Plants, Landscape/Scenery, People in Nature and our newest category – Artistically Enhanced.  All photos must be taken in the Botanical Gardens. Ribbons will be awarded for first, second and third place in each category.  Best of Youth, Adult and Professional Divisions will receive a $50 cash prize. All 2016 entries will be on display at the Siskiyou Arts Museum in Dunsmuir through the month of October.

Please mark your calendars for the 2016 contest deadline, September 23, 2016. The complete list of rules and entry forms are available for download on our Annual Photo Contest web page or contact: info@dunsmuirbotanicalgardens.org for additional information.
