National Garden Clubs Vision of Beauty
All members of clubs affiliated with National Garden Clubs, Inc. are invited to
send digital photos as examples of skill and artistry for the 2016 Calendar.
Photos of your own garden are also accepted for consideration. All types of
designs are requested: Traditional, Contemporary, New Trends, and those
appropriate for seasons of the year and holidays.
Submit only Vertical digital photos, taken with a camera with a minimum of
eight (8)mega-pixels.
A digital print, size 5”x7”, must be submitted by mail, along with an Entry
Form. For clarity of reproduction, please also email the digital image to
the Chairman,
Individuals may submit a maximum of five (5) entries, with only one (1)
background for each entry.
Sharp focus is a “must” for reproduction. Check for sharpness with a
magnifying glass. Only quality photos are accepted. Photo Shop is strongly
discouraged, unless done professionally, since it distorts the color of plant
material and blurs the photo.
Background should be free of creases, wrinkles and patterns. If dark
backgrounds are used, sufficient lighting must also be used to make the design
clear and crisp.
Handle entries with caution when mailing to avoid scratches. DO NOT use
Scotch tape or paper clips. Extra packing material or padded envelopes
are recommended.
All entries will be judged by the same criteria used to judge Flower Show
Submitted photos become the property of NGC, Inc. Notification will be given
if used. No entries will be returned.
