Folks at the Historic Gardens are inviting any and all photographers to submit their favourite photos of the Historic Gardens to the 6th Annual Photography Contest and Exhibit to provide the public with a chance to showcase their love for the Gardens.
The exhibit is open to anyone who wishes to show off their artwork and skills, while the contest is open only to amateur photographers. There are various categories, including specimens, views, people, etc and there is a special Junior Shutterbug category as well. Staff at the Gardens are very excited to be receiving entries already – all photographs must be dropped off at the Gardens Office by Tuesday, August 9th 2011. Judging will take place Friday, August 12th, and the exhibit will be on display from August 12-21.
Whether you are inspired by the roses, lilies, or the Acadian House, grab a camera and start taking pictures so others can see the Gardens’ beauty through your eyes. ! As Nova Scotians celebrate the 30th Birthday of the Historic Gardens, opened in August 1981, there are expectations that this year’s photo exhibit will be extra special!
