The Photography Competition is a special event we look forward to each year, as it celebrates the creativity and beauty of plants, flowers and green living. Entered photographs will be individually reviewed by a panel of judges prior to the opening of the show and will be scored based on creativity, composition and technical merit.
All class winners, along with best in show, will receive special recognition and be featured within our Green Gallery— potentially putting your work on display for over 40,000+ Chicago Flower & Garden Show attendees to see.
