2020 ODS PHOTO CONTESTS

There are four categories:
    Landscape
    Individual Plant
    Artistic Rendering.
    Best Scape
All will require some aspect of a daylily or garden with daylilies included.

LANDSCAPE - show at least one daylily plant in a photogenic scene ideally highlighting your own gardens.

INDIVIDUAL PLANT - focus on one plant - a clump, single fan, scape in bloom or single blossom.

ARTISTIC - an image of a blossom with insects or frogs or something that gives the viewer a sense of "Ahh isn't that interesting!". It can be ANYTHING that is a good photo that inspires interest and may or may not center on a daylily but must include a daylily as a significant part of the image.

BEST SCAPE - This contest focuses on the quality of the scape, rather than the quality of the photograph. A good daylily should have a well branched scape with high bud count.



Photos will be adjudicated for appropriateness and may be rejected or reclassified. The winning photo in each category will be the one that receives the most votes from members in an online poll.

All ODS members will have the opportunity to vote ONLINE for each contest. Entries will be posted on the ODS website and ODS members will be sent the links to the ballots. The deadline for submitting votes will be March 30.
