2018 BEST SCAPE AWARD (new this year)

This contest focuses on the scape, NOT the flower - a good daylily should have a well branched scape with lots of buds. This could be done as a physical scape brought to a meeting or as a photo. Since the summer is past, for this year we will use photos - a good photo that shows the branching well.

2018 PHOTO CONTEST (new this year)

ODS is offering awards for photos in these three categories: Landscape, Individual Plant, Artistic Rendering.
All will require some aspect of a daylily or garden with daylilies included.
LANDSCAPE should show at least one daylily plant in a photogenic scene ideally highlighting your own gardens.
INDIVIDUAL PLANT should focus on one plant - a clump, single fan, scape in bloom or single blossom.
ARTISTIC often is an image of a blossom with bugs 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.

The 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.
